    Billionaire Jeff Greene has switched tactics in Hudson Square. Rather than build a 140,000-square-foot condominium project at 100 Vandam Street, as he told The Real Deal he would do, he has decided to sell the parcel for $150 million, or three times what he paid last year. The move follows a contentious rezoning of the area that will allow for bigger residential developments. [more]

    Updated, 10:24 a.m., July 2: A hedge fund manager has taken 60,000 square feet at Edward Minskoff’s 101 Sixth Avenue, in the latest sign of once-gritty Hudson Square’s growing appeal to financial companies, the Wall Street Journal reported.

    The City Council voted Wednesday to approve the rezoning of Hudson Square in Lower Manhattan. The rezoning will allow developers — including the area’s dominant player Trinity Real Estate — to move forward with several large-scale hotel and residential projects.

    As part of the approval process, Speaker Christine Quinn secured a commitment for a vote on landmark status for the adjacent South Village Historic District, according to a statement from Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, a preservation group. But community activists were concerned that the city did not discuss any landmark designations for sites south of Houston Street, which is home to nearly half of the proposed district.  [more]

    Hudson Square moved a step closer today to getting more new housing when two City Council committees approved a controversial proposal by the property arm of Trinity Church to rezone the Lower Manhattan neighborhood, the New York Observer reported.

    The zoning and land use committees signed off a plan that would let developers build 2,000 to 3,000 new apartments — many of them affordable — into the neighborhood.  The full council is expected to OK the plan later this month; if the plan gets the nod, the rezoning will take effect immediately.  [more]

  • Hudson Square, where Trinity Real Estate seeks to build new towers

    Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer gave the rezoning of Hudson Square his conditional approval yesterday, though not without extracting some concessions from major landlord Trinity Real Estate, which hopes to erect new residential towers in the area, the New York Observer reported.
