50 Hudson Street is inching closer to approval for the addition of a glass, two-story residential addition to the rooftop. The proposal must get final approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission but was reportedly well received by local residents who embrace the proposed modern infusion while preserving the neighborhoods historic charm. The two story, 8706 SF addition is designed by Theirry Despont and will be constructed from glass brick. The new structure will feature 3 residential units, a rooftop terrace and a penthouse atrium. 50 Hudson Street, located at 540-544 Hudson Street, was originally built in 1925 and renovated in 2007. The building features 11,000 SF of usable space including ground floor retail and 2 floors of office space. No date for resubmission of plans for review have been announced.
