In February 2024, Google officially opened its new campus at St. John’s Terminal in Hudson Square. This day has been a long time coming – in late 2018, Google announced that it would spend $1 billion on a new campus in the former freight terminal of the High Line. The deal closed in summer 2019, but further progress was delayed amidst the pandemic-induced lockdown and slow return to the office.
Google moved into its new offices shortly after Fashion Week, which was also a busy time for Hudson Square. Less than six months after the nearby Spring Studios served as the hub of the 2024 spring/summer Fashion Week, the runway show presenting Eckhaus Latta’s autumn/winter 2024 collection took place at 75 Varick Street, an industrial building turned office. The show took place roughly around the time that fashion labels like David Yurman, Mejuri, and ESPRIT signed deals for new and expanded office space in Hudson Square.

Hudson-Square-04 The transformed Hudson Square (Vocon)

"This season, we wanted a venue that spoke to shows we’ve done and places we’ve been...and also felt like a proposition for the future. Hudson Square felt like a place with newness and excitement, but had its own history in a way you can only find in New York" — Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta

Hudson-Square-01 A small sample of buildings that have transformed Hudson Square (Google Earth aerial map of Hudson Square)
Through it all, the former no-man’s-land on the West Side has evolved from an industrial printing neighborhood to a residential one with top developers and Pritzker Prize laureates at the helm. Hudson Square’s proximity to Soho, Tribeca, and the West Village was a key factor in its early popularity, but it has emerged as a destination in its own right. A robust dining scene has taken shape, and those who’d rather eat at home can visit a Trader Joe’s outpost at 233 Spring Street. Moreover, the Spring Street Park renovation, newly created Freeman Plazas East and West, and protected bike lane have made the area more welcoming and pedestrian-friendly (h/t Hudson Square BID).
Below, we look at the buildings that have transformed the area, not to mention welcomed deep-pocketed buyers: A study cited in Time Out New York placed Hudson Square is among the 15 most expensive neighborhoods in America, and CityRealty data puts Soho condo prices at an average of $2,136 per square foot.

While many new buildings have taken shape on the streets surrounding Google and Disney's Hudson Square headquarters, residents of 80 Clarkson Street will practically be able to step out of bed and land at the office: The site is in the northernmost section of the former St. John's Terminal where Google's offices just opened. Soaring up to 450 feet tall, the height of the towers was made possible through amended zoning and the purchase of air rights from Pier 40.

The buildings by COOKFOX take inspiration from early high-rise icons and Hudson Square's industrial history, and a biophilic design prioritizes a connection with nature through planted roofs and terraces. The apartments inside are expected to enjoy incredible natural light and interiors by Thierry Despont. Foundation work is currently underway.

Disney headquarters Hudson Square Disney headquarters (Skidmore Owings & Merrill)
In July 2018, Disney paid $650 million for the rights to develop a stretch of Hudson Square into a new, 19-story company headquarters with “East” and “West” buildings to be designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill. The properties in this assemblage included 304 Hudson Street, 137 Varick Street, and, to the consternation of many locals, the property used by City Winery.

More recently, the green glass and terra cotta facade on the future home of Disney's headquarters is nearly complete. When it is, it will house new studios for The View and Live with Kelly and Mark (though not Good Morning America, which has reportedly extended its lease to stay in Times Square so as to better compete with the Today show) as well as ground-floor retail space and production offices. Disney sold its longtime Lincoln Center complex to Silverstein Properties for $1.155 billion in March 2020, but is currently renting it back ahead of the move downtown.

In October 2019, Taconic Investment Partners and Nuveen signed a 99-year ground lease on 2 Hudson Square, a development site in the southeast section of Hudson Square. At the beginning of 2021, the first official renderings were revealed for the 26-story, 465-foot-tall building to rise on the site. Renderings by SHoP Architects show a textured steel facade, floor-to-ceiling glass, glazed terra cotta mullions, and setbacks that allow for landscaped terraces. The new building will house a new, 444-seat public school for grades K-5 on the first five floors with an outdoor playground on the fifth floor.

The rest of the building will have office space with high ceilings, incredible views, and private terrace on select floors. The project is targeting LEED Platinum certification on the core and shell of the building, as well as WELL Platinum certification for the office space. Construction was delayed in the wake of the pandemic, but a recent visit saw that pile driving has begun to prepare the building's foundations.

388 Hudson Street

Developer and designer TBD
355 feet high at most | 100+ units
Completion TBD

In December 2021, as part of the Soho/Noho rezoning, then-City Councilmember Margaret Chin negotiated a deal to put affordable housing on the vacant, city-owned parcel at 388 Hudson Street. Owing to a water tunnel beneath, only half the site can be safely developed. As such, a tower with at least 100 affordable housing units would be tall and thin by default.

Locals and Village Preservation have said that they appreciate the need for affordable housing, but call the proposed tower out of proportion for the neighborhood. They are also worried about it casting shadows on the nearby James J. Walker Park as well as the Greenwich Village Historic District. They will not have to worry about it for quite some time, though -- the project is still in very early stage's of the city's land use process.

While Google still allows a hybrid work schedule, employees may not mind coming to the office at the new Hudson Square headquarters. The striking building comprises nine glassy floors over three prewar stories. Instead of sitting according to department, it offers a “neighborhood seating” model that groups people based on projects. A ground-floor coffee bar, a central staircase, and an acre and a half of private gardens serve as natural meeting spaces. The whole thing is underpinned by state-of-the-art technology and an eco-friendly infrastructure that includes solar panels, rainwater retention system, and a 500-space bike parking area.

Just around the corner from 375 Hudson Street, where Publicis Groupe recently unveiled a new flagship office, a full-block office building opened on the former site of a parking garage in fall 2023. The design was informed by Art Deco architecture influences, but is underpinned by state-of-the-art sustainable technology like geothermal and radiant heating and cooling, a dedicated outdoor air system for improved ventilation, and a fully electrical infrastructure. There are terraces on the sixth, tenth, twelfth, and sixteenth floors, and workers also benefit from an address only two blocks from the Houston Street 1 train stop.

With a design by Tahir Demircioglu and interiors by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, 570 Broome Street boasts impeccable credentials and an eye-catching building that lives up to them. The design was inspired by the local architecture, but the facade treatment works as a self-cleaning structure while purifying the surrounding air - probably a key factor in the building getting an A under the new building grade system. All apartments feature floor-to-ceiling windows, soaring ceilings, oak floors, custom kitchens with high-end appliances, and ultra-private bedrooms. Amenities within include two landscaped gardens, fitness center with Peloton bikes and yoga studio, and lounge with game room and landscaped outdoor terrace.

As Hudson Square becomes more residential, this does not have to come at the expense of the area's historic architecture. 100 Vandam Street is proof of that: The six-story former commercial building was restored to its former glory, while a contemporary tower with floor-to-ceiling windows makes a dramatic change to the structure. Recesses in the design allow for landscaped loggias and terraces for many of the new apartments, and the edges act as solar shades.

All interiors feature expansive layouts, wide-plank oak flooring, Poliform kitchens, and custom millwork. Amenities include an attended double-height lobby, a fitness center with high-end equipment, a children's playroom, a game lounge with candy canteen, and a theater-quality screening room.

New York's historic downtown neighborhoods have seen an influx of modernist single-family townhouses in recent years, and 512 Greenwich Street can now be added to the list. The four-story loft building spent three years being transformed into a seven-story, single-family townhouse wrapped in a porous trellis system to allow for privacy and light. An entity known as Familia Holdings LLC purchased the property for $3.7 million in June 2015, and public records indicate that it sold for $8.7 million in June 2021.
