SOM Reveals Design for Walt Disney’s New Headquarters in New York

4 Hudson Square is Walt Disney’s new headquarters in the Big Apple, designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM). Located in the Lower Manhattan district, in the neighborhood of Hudson Square, the project will create a space for the company’s New York operations.

Surrounded by old loft buildings from the area’s printmaking industrial past, now home to rehabilitated offices, studios and exhibition spaces, 4 Hudson Square is set in the latest center for startups, media, and technology of the city. Bordered by Vandam Street to the north, Varick Street to the east, Spring Street to the south, and Hudson Street to the west, the project covers an entire city block, with the possibility to reach 85,000 square feet per floorplate. Suitable for a media production house, the headquarters will expand over a total of 1.2 million gross square feet.
