In response to the continuing demand for living and working in Hudson Square, over the next 3-5 years, we will experience a significant uptick in construction. In July, the Walt Disney Company announced plans to develop Hudson Square into the new home for Disney’s New York headquarters. The 1mm square foot (SF) redevelopment of the site is set to begin in 2019. Further west, Oxford Properties and Atlas Capital are developing a 2MM SF mixed – use site at 550 Washington Street. Along with new construction that is already underway. Hudson Square is growing into a 24/7 vibrant neighborhood. At the BID, our goal is to help communicate construction updates to locals and help mitigate the effects of construction.
