Located at 4 Hudson Square in New York City, The Walt Disney Company’s new headquarters will cover an entire city block.

The project will be part of the fabric of Hudson Square with ground level retail amenities. The 19-story building will rise in a series of setbacks that culminate in two, 320-foot towers and several terraces matching the scale of Hudson Square. The building will provide views of the Hudson River to the west and will visually connect to the water towers and warehouse rooftops that characterize Lower Manhattan. Floorplates will reach up to 85,000-sf with 1.2 million gross sf in total.

The facade will feature masonry and stone, as well as bronze-colored metal, hints of color, and punched windows. Double- and triple-columned green terracotta panels will create a distinct texture that echoes the undulating facades of the neighborhood.
