More exterior progress on Google’s 1.3 million-square-foot office at 550 Washington Street has been made in Hudson Square. Designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by Oxford Properties, the topped-out building is the central component of the “Googleplex” that will encompass a total of 1.7 million square feet across three separate structures with the other two sites being 315 Hudson Street and 345 Hudson Street.

Construction is progressing on Gansevoort Peninsula Park, a new 5.5-acre public recreational space near the West Village on the Hudson River. Designed by James Corner Field Operations, who was commissioned by the Hudson River Park Trust in January 2019, the park is located next to Pier 53 and directly across from the Whitney Museum of American Art, and will most notably contain Manhattan’s first public beach.
Exterior work is nearing completion on the Tin Building, a three-story commercial building at 95 Marginal Street on Pier 17 in the South Street Seaport District. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by Howard Hughes Corporation with Plaza Construction as construction manager, the facility will open with a seafood-themed market by Jean-Georges Vongerichten, the main tenant of the low rise building. The 53,000-square-foot structure is located to the east of South Street and the elevated FDR Drive.
Exterior work is wrapping up on 219 Hudson Street, a ten-story mixed-use building in Hudson Square. Designed by Rawlings Architects and developed by Joel Braver, the property will yield 14 residential units, ground-floor retail space, and a community facility at the intersection of Hudson and Canal Streets, just to the west of the entrance to the Holland Tunnel.
