Re-Imagining a 1910 Building in a Thriving New York Neighborhood

330 Hudson
New York, New York, USA

The restoration and expansion of 330 Hudson Street has transformed a 1910 warehouse building into a dynamic office and retail destination with eight new floors of contemporary Class A headquarters office space.

Located in the Hudson Square area of Manhattan, the 16-story building borders the western edge of SoHo and is influenced by the neighborhood’s turn-of-the-century industrial warehouses.

A complete restoration of the original eight-story building includes the two-story limestone colonnade, brick facade with punched openings, one-story limestone cornice and portions of the original Beaux-Arts storefronts. All decorative column capitals are restored or replicated. The heritage bronze metalwork featured on storefronts and the entry canopy recalls the neighborhood’s historic context.

The insertion of a transitional brick envelope merges the base building with the modern glass-and-aluminum curtain wall of the tower’s eight-floor addition. Inside, 14-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows offer panoramic views of the river and city in every direction.

The team designed the new limestone lobby as a modern passageway and gallery space. LED media panels installed throughout the lobby stream high-impact digital imagery and graphics, providing a constantly changing arrival experience for tenants and visitors.

The U-shaped building wraps around a square courtyard developed as a private outdoor amenity space for tenants. Courtyard-facing precast window panels bring natural light deep into the tower’s large floor plates. The courtyard opens onto Old Jan’s Alley, the historic site of John Seales’ 1638 farm, one of the original plantations of the New Amsterdam colony.

Custom lighting punctuates an adjacent through-block passage wall to form a neutral backdrop. Buff pavers line the walkway, and decorative gates at each end of the passage integrate details reminiscent of the original building’s storefront grilles.

The building design has achieved LEED Gold Core & Shell pre-certification.
