Demolition is making steady progress at 550 Washington Street in Hudson Square, the site of Google’s newest 1.3-million-square-foot building. Workers continue to dismantle part of the steel superstructure of St. John’s Terminal, which directly overlooks the Hudson River. Designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by Oxford Properties, the new facility will join two other nearby buildings at 315 Hudson Street and 345 Hudson Street to form a 1.7-million-square-foot “Googleplex.”

Work is wrapping up on The Edge observation deck at 30 Hudson Yards in preparation for a March 11, 2020 opening date. Cantilevering 80 feet out above Tenth Avenue at an elevation of 1,131 feet, The Edge is the highest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere. The platform protrudes from the sloped eastern elevation of the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed commercial office building, which at 1,296 feet tall comes in at number four in our countdown of the tallest buildings being constructed in New York City. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are the developers of the supertall, which is also the tallest structure in first phase of Hudson Yards.
Tickets are now on sale to visit “Edge” at Hudson Yards, the tallest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere. The observatory is perched 1,131 feet above ground and protrudes from the 100th floor of 30 Hudson Yards.
The steelwork is continuing its vertical ascent at 50 Hudson Yards, where the large rectangular floor plates have begun to reach the sixth and final floor of the podium. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, the supertall skyscraper will eventually stand 1,011 feet tall and contain 2.9 million square feet of office space. Oxford Properties and Mitsui Fudosan are developing the project, which is the final component in the first phase of Related Companies‘ Hudson Yards and will also be the largest office building by floor space in the 28-acre master plan.
Google is leasing 1.3 million square feet at St. John’s Terminal as part of its Hudson Square campus. This week, the tech company closed the final deal after announcing plans late last year for Google Hudson Square, a $1 billion company campus at 550 Washington Street. The 1.7 million-square-foot campus will also occupy both 345 and 315 Hudson Street by 2020.
