Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and developed by Silverstein Properties, the 338-foot-tall building will yield 1.2 million square feet of offices, film and production studios, and ground-floor retail space. Lendlease is the contractor for the property, which is alternatively addressed as 137 Varick Street and occupies a full-block parcel bound by Varick Street to the east, Spring Street to the south, Hudson Street to the west, and Vandam Street to the north.

The full-block parcel is bound by Greenwich Street to the west, Vesey Street to the north, Church Street to the east, and Fulton Street to the south. The site is currently being used as a secondary entrance to the PATH trains and subway lines and the Westfield World Trade Center mall within Santiago Calatrava Architects‘ Oculus, and an outdoor beer garden along Church Street surrounded by colorful commissioned murals on the corrugated metal and exposed ventilation ducts.
