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).
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.
