The St. John's Center at 530-550 Washington Street is currently hosting an exhibit on the future of Hudson Square, but little did we know how directly the building itself would play into that future. Patrick Heglund reports in the Villager that if the Related Companies' redevelopment plan for the nearby Pier 40?dubbed Vegas on the Hudson?moves forward, the St. John's owners will pursue building an as-of-right hotel or luxury condominiums on the building's roof. Someone has to cater to those Cirque du Soleil freaks, right? The St. John's Center possesses about 300,000 square feet of developable air rights, more than enough to get something big and splashy built.
