Construction is continuing to rise on Disney’s 1.2 million-square-foot headquarters at 137 Varick Street in Hudson Square. Alternately addressed as Four Hudson Square, the 22-story, 338-foot-tall steel-framed structure is designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and is being developed by Silverstein Properties. The media giant purchased the full-block parcel from Trinity Church Real Estate for a total of $650 million and Skanska demolished four old structures that occupied the site last summer. Lendlease is constructing the new headquarters, which is bound by Varick Street to the east, Spring Street to the south, Hudson Street to the west, and Vandam Street to the north.
