Construction Update: 50 West Street Rising Quickly, Gets Glassy

50 West Street50 West Street

The 64-story tower at 50 West Street is currently rising, and YIMBY got a a few shots of the skyscraper from the West Side Highway. The tower is up to about twenty-five stories, and will eventually rise to a full height of 783 feet – about 200 feet shy of the 300-meter, 984-foot cutoff that defines a supertall skyscraper, but still quite sizable, even on the already very tall Lower Manhattan skyline.

The tower will have 191 apartments spread over 406,000 square feet of residential space, for a quite large average unit size of over 2,100 square feet, with between 2.5 and four apartments per floor, a full-floor penthouse on the 61st floor, and a duplex on the 62nd and 63rd.

The very highest penthouses have not yet been released for sale, but the two four-bedrooms units on the 59th floor are listed for $22.6 million and $18.6 million, or in the $5,000s and $6,000s per square foot.

Time Equities is the developer, and Helmut Jahn is the design architect. SLCE is the architect of record, and Thomas Juul-Hansen is responsible for the interiors.

Completion and occupancy are targeted for next year, and the project appears to be on-track for meeting its opening date, with glass already appearing along the base of the tower.
