Another office building is about to rise in Hudson Square, reports 6sqft.
Hudson Square Partners - a joint venture between Trinity Church Wall Street, Norgest Bank Investment Management, and Hines - broke ground last week on 555 Greenwich, a new 16-story building at the intersection of Greenwich and King Streets. Plans call for a total of 270,000 square feet of office space atop ground-floor commercial uses.
COOKFOX Architects is designing the tower, which will include 10,000 square feet of outdoor space in the form of terrace decks on upper level setbacks. Plans call for an exterior of glass and metal on the building's upper floors, with masonry located below.
Though a separate project, the 555 Greenwich will be combined with an adjoining high-rise at 345 Hudson Street - a 17-story building which houses Google's regional headquarters. The new construction will provide connections to the existing building at each floor, while a transformation of King Street would provide a ground-level pedestrian connection across the campus.
Completion of the tower is expected in 2022.
