This week, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill revealed fresh renderings of the new Walt Disney Headquarters at 4 Hudson Square in Lower Manhattan. The 22-story building will comprise 1.2 million square feet and is expected to break ground by 2022. Disney has partnered with Silverstein Properties to complete the new development.
Today, YIMBY has the first look at The Walt Disney Company’s future headquarters in Hudson Square. The development will be located at 137 Varick Street and will consist of a pair of 19-story buildings. Demolition is currently underway at the site, and several more structures will also need to be cleared to make way for the mass media company. YIMBY last reported on the property back in late September, noting the project will be formally addressed as Four Hudson Square. Skidmore Owings & Merrill is the designer of the project and Skanska is in charge of the on-site demolition activity.
Permits have been filed for a 19-story commercial building at 561 Greenwich Street in Hudson Square, Manhattan. Occupying the entire block between Charlton Street and King Street, the lot is two blocks west of the Houston Street subway station, serviced by the 1 train. Trinity Church Wall Street is listed as the owner behind the applications.
YIMBY went on a tour of Greenwich West, aka 110 Charlton Street, a 30-story residential building nearing completion in Hudson Square. Installation of the hand-laid brick masonry is nearly finished on the structure, which is designed by Francoise of Loci Anima along with Adamson Associates. The project is being developed by Strategic Capital, Cape Advisors, and Forum Absolute Capital Partners, while Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is handling sales for the building’s 170 units.
Partial demolition is in full swing at the site of St. John’s Terminal at 550 Washington Street, as work begins to transform the property into the cornerstone of Google’s new Hudson Square campus. This 1.3-million-square-foot structure will join two other buildings at 315 Hudson Street and 345 Hudson Street as part of Manhattan’s newest Google-plex. COOKFOX Architects is the designer and Oxford Properties is the developer of the 1.7-million-square-foot aggregation.
