Trinity Real Estate- which is currently developing the mixed-use, Brennan Beer Gorman-designed 330 Hudson Street to LEED Silver specifications- is the largest landlord in the Hudson Square submarket, where it has been converting industrial space into Class A commercial offices since 1983. The firm is the real estate arm of Trinity Church, the downtown Episcopal parish that currently enjoys a 93 percent occupancy rate for its portfolio.
Trinity owns and operates six million square feet across eighteen buildings north of Canal Street and west of Sixth Avenue. Earlier this year, the company opened its new 16,000-square-foot headquarters space at One Hudson Square (75 Varick Street), designed by architects Mancini Duffy to achieve a LEED for Commercial Interiors (“LEED-CI”) Silver rating. The project is still waiting for formal certification from USGBC.
Mancini Duffy’s design for the interior fit-out preserved the former industrial building’s concrete columns and slabs, integrating them into the office space. The office features a daylight sensor system, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a layout that allows daylight to penetrate deep into the core. LEED-standard materials selection includes recycled-content countertops, terrazzo floors, nylon carpets, and gypsum wall board, as well as bamboo paneling and cork wall tiles. LEED consultants YRG, AKF Engineers, and general contractor Alexander Wolf & Son were also part of the project team. Other tenants at 1 Hudson Square include Adelphi University, Morgan Stanley, and Pricewaterhouse Coopers.
