261 Hudson Street
While development is booming across Lower Manhattan, the block of SoHo that contains 2 Renwick and 261 Hudson Street has seen particularly significant changes in recent months. Work is now wrapping up at 2 Renwick, which will likely come out more attractive than depicted in renderings, while excavation is finally underway at 261 Hudson, where earth is moving quickly.

Just a short walk up, Related’s new project at 261 Hudson Street is also moving quickly. The building — designed by Ismael Leyva, and set to rise 12 floors with 201 apartments — will fill one of the larger cavities on the block, also spanning through to Renwick Street.
2 Renwick is expected to open later this year, while 261 Hudson has a summer 2016 completion date. Together, the buildings round out the last large redevelopment opportunities on the block, which still has some smaller sites worthy of new buildings.
