Oxford Properties has sold St. John’s Terminal to Google for $2.1 billion. Located at 550 Washington Street in Hudson Square, the terminal property is designed by COOKFOX and developed by Oxford Properties and will serve as the anchor of Google’s new corporate campus, which comprises 1.7 million square feet along with two additional sites at 315 Hudson Street and 345 Hudson Street.
Google’s spaces in the two Hudson Street buildings are now completed. The St. John’s Terminal building is expected to open by mid-2023 as the New York City headquarters for Google’s Global Business Organization.
Oxford Properties Group purchased the historic St. John’s Terminal site, which included 3.25 acres south of West Houston Street and 600 feet of Hudson River frontage, from Westbrook Partners and Atlas Capital Group for $700 million on January 31, 2018.
Described as a “biophilic office community,” St. John’s Terminal features large landscaped terraces that surround the perimeter of the fourth floor and each level above the tenth floor. Amenity spaces at St. John’s Terminal will include a rooftop garden, indoor and outdoor event spaces, bike storage, and a cafe.
Google employees have already started working in the new building.
