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.
Installation of the glass and brick curtain wall of 460 Main Street, aka Riverwalk 8, is nearing completion on Roosevelt Island. The 21-story, 341-unit building is designed by Handel Architects and is being developed as a joint venture between Related Companies and Hudson Companies. This will be the eighth component in the nine-building Riverwalk rental complex.
Buyers are now moving into a newly complete condominium building at 91 Leonard Street in TriBeCa, Manhattan. The structure was completed earlier this year by Toll Brothers City Living, the urban development division of Toll Brothers, Inc.
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.
Construction has topped out on a six-story, 112-foot-tall building at 70-74 Gansevoort Street. The Meatpacking District property is part of a block-long redevelopment and revitalization of Gansevoort Street between Washington Street and Greenwich Street. BKSK Architects is the designer and Aurora Capital and William Gottlieb Real Estate are developing the mixed-use office project, which sits adjacent to 60-68 Gansevoort Street, a five-story project also part of the neighborhood renewal plan. Both structures are enclosed in scaffolding and thick black netting, while the eastern end can be seen from the High Line with their exteriors preserved.
