This building looks very nice, but I’m pissed that a gorgeous old building was razed when there’s so much garbage in this area.

They’re calling that “contextual” for the neighborhood.

Is this going to be Disney’s world headquarters or just their NY headquarters?

Just NY. Their HQ is in SoCal.

Those buildings are gorgeous…A company with all that money and they can’t save the facade. Now that would be contextual. At least the new one isn’t a glass box.

Here is another conversion in Hudson Square. Glad they are leaving the facade and building up instead of demolishing the whole building.

Nice addition. Disney should have done something like this. Disney’s sense of urban planning and building design is Mickey Mouse in action—all greed and no sense.

The loss of the 8 story building and the City Winery (business) is a shame, but I’m also going to miss the two story building with the ground floor arches.

I was walking around 5th Avenue in the 40s the other day, and it’s such a dump. It’s really disheartening to see beautiful buildings get razed while crap remains.

The redesign, which is being spearheaded by Prima Paving Corporation, Sam Schwartz Engineering, and Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects, will extend sidewalks along Hudson Street up to five feet and add a new bike lane from Canal to West Houston streets. The revamp will also create 2,255 square feet for sidewalk cafes and will line the corridor with new trees, greenery, and benches.

That’s great news!

I’d love to see this elsewhere like on Fifth Ave, Broadway, and the major cross-streets like Canal, Houston, 14th, 23rd, etc.
