Construction Update: 30 Park Place

Like its uptown neighbor at 56 Leonard, 30 Park Place is making a relative impact on the skyline, and the floor-count is now in the mid-40s, with approximately 20 stories left before topping-out.

With the surprisingly rapid pace of construction over the summer, 30 Park Place is already on the verge of surpassing the Woolworth Building. Its 714-foot tall neighbor held the title of world’s tallest skyscraper from 1914 – 1930, and while it has long been overtaken by larger towers further downtown, 30 Park Place will dominate right next door, diminishing its relative visibility (and standing 926 feet tall).

Pre-cast concrete facade that resembles limestone

Change is the only constant that defines the New York skyline, and its continued evolution is a good thing, especially when new entrants take cues from the city’s masonry-clad favorites. Though the panels fronting 30 Park Place’s exterior are actually cast concrete, they appear convincingly limestone-esque, especially from any appreciable distance.

The Four Seasons Hotel & Residences should open sometime next year. Silverstein is the developer, Robert A.M. Stern is the architect, and sales are underway, with listings priced up to $60 million.
