Work is nearing completion on Google’s 1.3 million-square-foot headquarters at 550 Washington Street in Hudson Square. Designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by Oxford Properties, the 232-foot-tall building is the centerpiece of the company’s “Googleplex” master plan that will encompass a grand total of 1.7 million square feet across three separate structures. The other two sites include 315 Hudson Street and 345 Hudson Street. Turner Construction is responsible for building the 12-story project over the brick-clad base that was historically known as St. John’s Terminal. 550 Washington Street spans two full city blocks between West Street, West Houston Street, Washington Street, and the New York Department of Sanitation building.
Construction is rising on 241 West 28th Street, a 22-story residential project in Chelsea. Designed by COOKFOX for MAG Partners, Atalaya, Safanad, and Qualitas, the 248,000-square-foot two-tower development will yield 479 units with 30 percent reserved for low- and middle-income households. King Contracting Group is doing the brick work and Urban Atelier Group is the general contractor for the complex, which is located between Seventh and Eighth Avenues.
Exterior work is progressing on 378 West End Avenue, an 18-story residential development on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by COOKFOX and developed by Alchemy Properties, the project incorporates the restoration of the adjacent 1915 Palazzo-style building at the corner of West End Avenue and West 78th Street, and will yield 58 units with sales and marketing led by Alchemy Properties and Compass. Homes will be available in one- to six-bedroom spreads and a collection of penthouses, with prices ranging from $1,795,000 to nearly $10 million. Leeding Builders Group is the general contractor for 378 West End Avenue, which is located along West 78th Street between West End Avenue and Broadway.
Google will no longer be a tenant of the 1.7 million-square-foot St. John’s Terminal campus—the tech giant will purchase the entire development. Located in Hudson Square, Manhattan, the commercial campus comprises three distinct buildings at 315 Hudson Street, 345 Hudson Street, and St. John’s Terminal at 550 Washington Street.
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. Turner Construction is responsible for constructing the 12-story steel-framed edifice that spans two full city blocks between West Street, West Houston Street, Washington Street, and the New York Department of Sanitation building.
