Construction is wrapping up on the vertical expansion at 330 Hudson Street, which looks nothing like the original renderings. The final product appears to have taken a discreet tact compared to the former design, which would have been significantly taller; instead, the addition seems to nestle into the existing structure, and the transformation between old and new isn’t nearly as noticeable.
This is partially due to the project’s conversion from mixed-use to purely office. 330 Hudson Street was originally supposed to house a 171-room hotel, which has – obviously – been shelved. Each of the tower’s glass-clad upper floors has over 17,000 square feet of space, and the eventual occupants will probably be an assortment of technology and media companies, which are proliferating in the neighborhood.
The project is being developed by Beacon Capital, and the architect is BBG-BBGM. 330 Hudson Street’s website has all the details.
