Brick façade installation is progressing on 555 Greenwich, a 16-story commercial building in Hudson Square, Manhattan. Designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by Hudson Square Properties, a joint venture from Trinity Church Wall Street, Hines, and Norges Bank Investment Management, the new 270,000-square-foot structure will connect to the adjacent 345 Hudson Street via a horizontal overbuild to yield a combined 715,000 square feet of office space. Tishman Construction is the general contractor for the property, which is bound by King Street to the north, Charlton Street to the south, and Greenwich Street to the west.
At the time of our last update in May, the reinforced concrete superstructure had recently topped out and stood covered in orange construction netting. Since then, the envelope of light-colored bricks has enclosed much of the northern and western elevations around the rectangular window voids. Brickwork should continue through the remaining weeks of summer and into the early fall.
Construction of the mechanical bulkhead is also taking shape, with metal frame studs lining the rectangular volume. The upper office floors also have metal clips in place on the edges of the floor plates in preparation for the installation of their glass curtain wall.
The combined structure will feature floor plates spanning up to 87,000 square feet, 33,000 square feet of outdoor space spread across 11 landscaped terraces, and ground-floor retail space.
555 Greenwich and 345 Hudson are aiming to exceed NYC’s 2030 climate targets for office buildings by over 45 percent, meet NYS’s 2050 carbon neutral targets, and achieve the highest rating (LEED Platinum) for sustainability. To that end, the property will incorporate geothermal and radiant heating and cooling, full electrification to eliminate the on-site use of fossil fuels, and dedicated outside air system (DOAS) to provide 100-percent outside air to tenants.
Below are some exterior and interior renderings for the complex.
YIMBY last reported that 555 Greenwich will be completed sometime next year.
