The Walt Disney Company’s Upper West Side Manhattan campus is being sold after a deal was reached with Trinity Church Wall Street. Disney now has the rights to develop the property located at 4 Hudson Square. Their previous location housed ABC and ESPN networks and had been operational since the late 1980s.
4 Hudson Square covers an entire city block with Hudson, Spring, Varick and Van Dam streets surrounding it. The property will be the new home of ABC’s “Live with Kelly and Ryan” and “The View”. Disney Streaming Services will also be joining the party at the new location as well but “Good Morning America” is going to stay put at its Times Square Studio location.
“This move represents an historic step forward toward our long-term vision for our New York operations. The Hudson Square district is rapidly becoming a dynamic, innovative hub for media, technology and other creative businesses, ” said Robert A. Iger, chairman and CEO of Disney. “We are pleased and proud to be joining this exciting community and look forward to investing in the growth and development of the neighborhood.”
Silverstein Properties, Inc has an agreement with Disney to purchase the old Upper West Side property. That deal does not include ESPN’s home in a building located across the street from the main campus.
