Construction is wrapping up on the 60-story, 145-unit residential tower at 56 Leonard Street, located on the corner of Church Street in TriBeCa. Tectonic’s latest photo, posted to the YIMBY Forums, shows that the exterior is practically complete, with the exception of the construction elevator and the façade that will go in its place. The 821-foot-tall building’s Jenga-like pattern of overhanging floors is now clearly visible. The upper floors were still sheathed in netting when YIMBY last brought you an update a year ago. The bold design is the work of Herzog & de Meuron. Alexico Group and Hines are the developers. All of 56 Leonard’s condominiums sold by late last year and occupancy is now underway.
When YIMBY dove into the history of 101-111 Murray Street in TriBeCa earlier this summer, foundation work was underway for a planned 58-story, 157-unit residential tower. Construction on the project is now three stories above street level, as seen in photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by user rbrome. The latest building permits indicate the tower, to rise 800 feet, will encompass 479,278 square feet. The ground floor will host 2,088 square feet of retail, followed by residential units starting on the fourth floor. The apartments, condominiums, should average 2,356 square feet apiece. They will be accompanied by 20,000 square feet of luxury amenities. Fisher Brothers, Witkoff, and New Valley are the developers. Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates is the design architect while Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is serving as the executive architect. MR Architecture + Décor and Rockwell Group are designing the interiors, and Edmund Hollander Landscape Architects is designing the area around the base. Completion is expected in 2018.
Apartments are about to fill a parking lot in TriBeCa. New building applications have been filed to erect a 12-story, mixed-use building at 86 Warren Street, between Greenwich Street and West Broadway.
Vanbarton Group is in contract to acquire the six-story, 115,000-square-foot mixed-use building, formerly home to the Tribeca Film Festival, at 13-17 Laight Street, in TriBeCa, for $90 million. The group plans to convert the building into a retail, office, and “lifestyle facility” space, the New York Post reported. Vanbarton is in the process of buying out all of the property’s existing commercial and residential tenants. The 13,867-square-foot lot also comes with 10,530 square feet of air rights, although it’s not known if an expansion is planned.
Since last fall, when façade work was wrapping up, construction on the 11-story, 106-unit residential building at 456 Washington Street, located on the corner of Watts Street in TriBeCa, has finished. The new building encompasses 186,054 square feet and is home to 106 luxury rental apartments, 22 of which will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. The apartments, averaging 1,330 square feet apiece, range from studios to five-bedrooms.
