Foundation work is underway for Disney’s 1.2 million-square-foot headquarters at 137 Varick Street in Hudson Square. Alternately addressed as Four Hudson Square, the 22-story, 320-foot-tall structure is designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and is being developed in partnership with Silverstein Properties. Disney purchased the parcel from Trinity Church Real Estate for $650 million, and Skanska was responsible for the demolition of four structures that wrapped up last summer. Lendlease is in charge of 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.

Turner Construction is responsible for building the 12-story edifice that spans two full city blocks between West Street, West Houston Street, Washington Street, and the New York Department of Sanitation building.
Exterior work is now complete on 11 Greene Street, a seven-story residential building in Soho.

Located at the corner of Greene and Canal Streets, the building yields 31 units ranging from one- to two-bedroom layouts alongside a three-bedroom penthouse. Ryan Serhant of SERHANT is leading sales and marketing.
