Construction is nearing topping out at 550 Washington Street, Google’s 1.3 million-square-foot office in Hudson Square. Designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by Oxford Properties, the facility will join two other nearby structures at 315 Hudson Street and 345 Hudson Street to form a 1.7 million-square-foot hub dubbed the “Googleplex.” The site is bound by West Street, West Houston Street, Washington Street, and the New York Department of Sanitation offices.
345 Hudson Street
Demolition is making steady progress at 550 Washington Street in Hudson Square, the site of Google’s newest 1.3-million-square-foot building. Workers continue to dismantle part of the steel superstructure of St. John’s Terminal, which directly overlooks the Hudson River. Designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by Oxford Properties, the new facility will join two other nearby buildings at 315 Hudson Street and 345 Hudson Street to form a 1.7-million-square-foot “Googleplex.”
Partial demolition is in full swing at the site of St. John’s Terminal at 550 Washington Street, as work begins to transform the property into the cornerstone of Google’s new Hudson Square campus. This 1.3-million-square-foot structure will join two other buildings at 315 Hudson Street and 345 Hudson Street as part of Manhattan’s newest Google-plex. COOKFOX Architects is the designer and Oxford Properties is the developer of the 1.7-million-square-foot aggregation.
In a surprise announcement, Google has confirmed an initiative to expand its existing footprint in New York City. That expansion translates to a $1 Billion investment in Manhattan’s Hudson Square neighborhood. Officially known as Google Hudson Square, the 1.7 million square foot campus will occupy both 345 and 315 Hudson Street, as well as St. John’s Terminal located at 550 Washington Street.
