The structures will have the same style of rectangular windows. The design of the building is intended to blend seamlessly with the surrounding neighbourhood, which was once a printing district.

The 19-storey building will have a series of setbacks that ultimately blend in two 320ft-tall structures through a glassed-in walkway. The building will have several outdoor spaces, starting on the ninth floor.

Once the building is complete, Disney will shift its New York operations from West 66th Street on the Upper West Side to the new address.

In July 2018, Disney acquired the rights to develop the property at 4 Hudson Square from Trinity Church for $650m through a 99-year agreement.
