DDG’s Condo Project Approved At 100 Franklin Street, Tribeca

On adjacent triangular parcels at 100 Franklin Street – between West Broadway and Sixth Avenue, in Tribeca — DDG plans to develop two mixed-use buildings of six and eight stories tall, totaling 10 condominiums, with retail space on the ground floor. According to Crain’s Business, the Board of Standards and Appeals has granted DDG a variance to ignore a required upper-level set-back. The project is being designed in-house, and ground breaking is expected by the Fall, with completion is 2017. The LPC approved the project in January 2014.

Greystone Planning 10-Story Building At 108 Chambers Street, Tribeca

Greystone is planning to develop a 10-story building at 108 Chambers Street, in Tribeca, according to Tribeca Citizen. The property was acquired in April for $17 million, and is currently home to a single-story retail building. The site has roughly 12,000 square feet of unused air rights, but Greystone plans to demolish the existing structure. Site preparation is expected to begin in the next few weeks, but demolition and new building applications have yet to be filed.

Construction Update: 30 Park Place Gets Glassy

When we last checked in at Silverstein’s 30 Park Place, the 67-story hotel and condo tower had just topped out, becoming the tallest residential building in Lower Manhattan. Now most of the structure has its windows, except for the top 15 stories or so. Cladding has reached even further, and only the five uppermost floors are still naked steel and concrete.

62-Story, 157-Unit Luxury Tower To Stand 822 Feet Tall At 111 Murray Street, Tribeca

Witkoff Group’s and Fisher Brothers’ Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed luxury tower, planned for Tribeca at 101-111 Murray Street, has been amended to have 157 residential units, up from 139 stated in the original application. Despite an erroneous report, YIMBY has news that the 62-story tower will actually stand 822 feet above the street, merely 35 feet below the outdated 857-foot proposal. The 372,000 square-foot building will include a nearly 2,100 square-foot retail portion on the ground floor, and completion is expected in 2017.

Chinese Insurance Company Funds 62-Story Luxury Residential Building At 111 Murray Street, Tribeca

The developers of a 62-story, 139-unit mixed-use tower at 101-111 Murray Street, in Tribeca, have reportedly found financing, valued in the hundreds of millions, from a Chinese insurance company. YIMBY confirmed in March that 111 Murray Street will rise 857 feet tall, but first revealed the design in June of 2014. Witkoff Group and Fisher Brothers are developing; Kohn Pedersen Fox is designing. The site’s predecessor has now been demolished, and completion is expected in 2017.
