The site at 68-74 Trinity Place has been one of the more notable recent demolitions in the Financial District, with the building coming down over the course of the past year. The site’s owner, Trinity Church, had previously planned a condominium building designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli. While those plans were shelved earlier this year, we now have new renderings of what will replace it.
Two-and a-half years ago, YIMBY revealed renderings for a 28-story hotel at 50 Trinity Place in the Financial District. Now we have fresh images of the development, which is going to be an Aloft Hotel.
The last time YIMBY checked in on the new 58-story and 800-foot tall tower coming to 111 Murray Street, the building was just creeping above ground level. Now, a little over two months later, the structure is already climbing past its 15th floor, with the latest update thanks to YIMBY Forumer Kevin LeClerc.
Tribeca Associates is currently conducting a $30 million renovation of the 47-story, 470,000-square-foot office tower, known as the Continental Bank Building, at 30 Broad Street in the Financial District. Architecture firms Montroy Andersen DeMarco and Jun Aizaki Architecture & Design are behind the renovation.
New York City’s development booms result in buildings of all shapes and types. And while each round of additions brings lots of positive changes to the city’s skyline, the city’s denizens must, unfortunately, accept the bad with the good. While new projects in surrounding blocks will eventually block much of the building from most perspectives, the misproportioned parapets of 5 Beekman are, in the intermediary, an affront to New Yorkers and the skyline.
