Demolition is finished and excavation work is now in full swing for Disney’s new 1.2-million-square-foot headquarters at 137 Varick Street, aka Four Hudson Square. Since YIMBY’s last update in late February, the final remaining building at 304 Hudson Street has been cleared from the property, which Disney purchased from Trinity Church Real Estate for $650 million. Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and developed in partnership with Silverstein Properties, the upcoming 22-story building will eventually top out at 320 feet tall. Skanska oversaw the demolition process for the Hudson Square complex, which involved the razing of four structures.

The steel superstructure of Two Manhattan West is now well above ground in Midtown West. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by Brookfield, the 935-foot-tall skyscraper is located directly to the south of the completed One Manhattan West and will feature a nearly identical design. Two Manhattan West will top off at 58 floors and yield 2 million square feet of newly built office space, costing an estimated total of $2 billion.
Construction is nearing completion on the Pendry Manhattan West Hotel, a 281-foot-tall hotel at Four Manhattan West in Midtown West. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by Brookfield Properties, the 21-story building is just one of five buildings in the Manhattan West master plan, which sits directly across Tenth Avenue from Hudson Yards. The Pendry Manhattan West Hotel will provide a total of 164 guest rooms and a selection of condominiums on the upper levels.
Construction is fully complete on The Park Loggia, a 416-foot-tall residential building at 15 West 61st Street on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Formerly addressed as 1865 Broadway, the 33-story reinforced concrete structure is designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by AvalonBay Communities. Occupancy began last fall at the property, which is located along Broadway between West 61st Street and West 62nd Street, not far from Columbus Circle.
Renderings have been revealed for a six-story, 30,000-square-foot building that will house the South Street Seaport Museum. Located at John and South Streets, the new construction is part of a massive undertaking by the Howard Hughes Corporation and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill in the South Street Seaport District that also includes 250 Water Street, the completed Pier 17 building, and the 75,000-square-foot New Market Building adjacent to the Tin Building, which is already in progress.
