Since its former life as a home for the printing trade, 250 Hudson Street has been transformed into a modern Class A office building. Some improvements include upgraded electrical and communication systems, new cooling towers, and new boilers that operate almost exclusively on natural gas. And to top it off (literally), 250 Hudson sports a 10,000-square-foot lushly planted, slab-reinforced green roof that offers panoramic views of the Hudson River.
