Hudson Square: Ushering in the Future of Sustainable and Contextual Design

Join us for a special tour of one of New York City’s most dynamic neighborhoods, Hudson Square. The district, at the nexus of NYC’s premier retail and residential neighborhoods, is rich in history but is also leading the way in terms of sustainable design and thoughtful and contextual architecture that is appealing to some of the world’s largest and most innovative office tenants, including Google, Horizon Media, Publicis Groupe and Squarespace. Trinity Church Wall Street, steward of the neighborhood since the early 1700s, helped usher in a residential rezoning that has allowed the neighborhood to flourish, and, in partnership with Norges Bank and Hines, Trinity Church has repositioned their more than 6 million-square-foot portfolio of purpose-built printing house buildings to cater to modern office needs in a class A manner.

The group will tour the two cornerstones of the Hudson Square portfolio, 555 Greenwich + 345 Hudson and 75 Varick. 555 Greenwich is a 270,000-square-foot ground-up development designed by COOKFOX Architects that is the completion of the adjacent property, 345 Hudson (built in 1931), to create a 1.2 million-square-foot interconnected campus. 555 Greenwich represents the next generation of high-performing buildings and will exceed NYC’s 2030 climate targets for office buildings by over 45 percent and align with New York State 2050 carbon-neutral targets. 345 Hudson is one of three commercial buildings selected to participate in the Empire Building Challenge’s low-carbon public/private design partnership. We will end the tour at the southern end of Hudson Square at 75 Varick, which features downtown’s most expansive rooftop amenity.

The Evolution of New York City’s Skyscrapers

Explore the high-rise building boom that’s transformed New York City’s skyline in recent years. This tour will visit high-rises along Central Park West, Central Park South, and Park Avenue that have set records for some of the most expensive home sales in U.S. history but have also set the stage for the supertalls that have joined New York’s skyline in recent years.
