570 Washington Street
Permits Filed for Dual-Tower Project in Hudson Square
Building permits have just been filed for two neighboring towers as part of a major plan to re-develop a vacant development site, located at 570 Washington Street in Manhattan's Hudson Square neighborhood.
Jointly developed by Zeckendorf Development, Atlas Capital Group, and The Baupost Group, the buildings will total 937,808 square feet combined, and are to be addressed as 570 Washington Street, and 80 Clarkson Street. SLCE is listed as the architect for both structures on the permit filings. (***Please note that updated project renderings are not available yet and that the most recent depictions, created by COOKFOX Architects and shown below, may not be fully representative of the final design.)
80 Clarkson Street will be the taller of the two buildings, standing 34-stories (419 feet tall) and totaling 679,000 square feet. It will contain 133 ultra-luxurious residential units and ground-floor retail space. Plans also call for an enclosed parking garage, with enough room for 70 vehicles.
570 Washington Street will sit just to the east of its larger neighbor, standing 19-stories tall and totaling around 170,000 square feet. It will offer ground-floor retail space as well, but instead of luxury condos, it will provide 169 affordable rental units for senior citizens.
Bound by Washington Street, Clarkson Street, West Street, and West Houston Street, the project site totals 1.3 acres. In February of this year, Zeckendorf Development and Atlas Capital Group acquired the site from Westbrook Partners for $350 million. It sits directly across the street from the newly renovated, St. John's Terminal building, which houses Google's massive east coast headquarters.
