Exterior work is continuing on The Walt Disney Company’s new 22-story headquarters at Four Hudson Square in Hudson Square, Manhattan. Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and developed by Silverstein Properties, the 338-foot-tall structure will yield 1.2 million square feet of office space, film and production studios, and ground-floor retail. Lendlease is the general contractor for the property, which is alternatively addressed as 137 Varick Street and occupies a full-block parcel bound by Vandam Street to the north, Spring Street to the south, Varick Street to the east, and Hudson Street to the west.
The green terracotta façade continues to rise steadily since our last update in April, when the steel-framed superstructure had recently topped out. The paneling and floor-to-ceiling windows now enclose the building above the midpoint setback.
Additional steelwork has also finished framing the mechanical bulkheads atop each of the two towers.
Sections of bronze-colored panels with thin vertical louvres are positioned around the centerline of each elevation, adding contrast and depth to the fenestration. This same finish will enclose portions of the mechanical bulkheads.
Below are additional exterior renderings that show the complex and its surroundings.
4 Hudson Square is slated for completion sometime next year.
