Commercial Observer: Hudson Square Loft Buildings Get a Fresh Look
Our reinvention of three lobbies (and a few rooftops) in Manhattan’s Hudson Square recently attracted the attention of Commercial Observer:
When the designers from Architecture Plus Information were hired to revamp the lobbies of three Hudson Square loft buildings, they decided to try to restore the industrial history of the former printing press buildings near the Holland Tunnel.
The three-block-long, 1920s manufacturing buildings at 75 Varick Street, 225 Varick Street and 155 Avenue of the Americas comprise a significant portion of what was once known as New York City’s printing district. These days they’re filled with high-paying tech and media companies, like Squarespace and Horizon Media that demand casual and interesting lobbies. Hines, Trinity Real Estate and Norges Bank own the trio of buildings.
