ArchDaily: COOKFOX Reimagines Former High Line Freight Terminal as Workplace of the Future
Eric Baldwin – ArchDaily
“COOKFOX Architects and Oxford Properties have reimagined New York’s St. John’s Terminal as a workplace of the future. The 1.3 million square foot proposal aims to connect the Hudson Square neighborhood to the waterfront at the end of The High Line. Combining outdoor space and greenery with 100,000 square-foot floor plates, the project reinterprets the industrial past of the former freight terminal. The project was created to shape how businesses innovate and create between Lower Manhattan and the waterfront.
At St. John’s Terminal, the design from COOKFOX celebrates the site’s heritage. The former terminus of the High Line was once a conduit for daily goods distributed throughout NYC. The legacy of its railway heritage can still be seen embedded in the building’s structure. Located at 550 Washington Street at the corner of Houston and West Streets in Hudson Square, the building encompasses two entire city blocks in Manhattan – adjacent to Hudson River Park’s Pier 40 and at the intersection of the West Village, SoHo and Tribeca.”
