The city’s second-oldest cast iron building has emerged from its scaffolding at 93 Reade Street in Tribeca. The six-story structure, named Obsidian House, is slowly undergoing a conversion from rentals to condos.
Back in the winter, Toll Brothers closed on a property at 351 Broadway, at Leonard Street, in TriBeCa. Now we know what they want to do with it. According to filings, the plan is for a 210-foot, 19-story building at 91 Leonard Street. The building, which would wrap around on to Broadway, would cover a total of 160,845 square feet. There would be 153,047 square feet of residential space for 112 units, making for an average size of about 1,366 square feet.
Three years ago, the Tribeca Citizen spotted plans to convert the rundown industrial building at 28 North Moore Street into apartments. Now YIMBY has the first look at the revamped seven-story warehouse between Hudson and Varick Streets, courtesy of developer Valyrian Capital.
Nearly a year ago, YIMBY provided a construction update on Related Companies’ 10-story, 107-unit residential building planned at 460 Washington Street, in Tribeca, and now crews are adding the finishing touches to the building, per DNAinfo. Late last year, the building topped-out, and façade installation and interior work have been ongoing since. Units will average roughly 1,300 square feet apiece, and Related will rent 22 apartments (20 percent) at below market rates; the application process has just launched. BKSK Architects is designing, and completion is expected in early 2016.
YIMBY has chronicled the slow evolution of ABN Realty’s 21-story, 24-unit residential project at 19 Park Place, in Tribeca, since the summer of 2013, and now a YIMBY reader has shared photos of the topped-out structure. The façade can also be seen rising skyward, and each condominium will feature a relatively prominent circular balcony. The 25-foot-wide building is being designed by Ismael Leyva, and extends through the block. Completion is likely by early 2016.
The Hudson River Park Trust plans to redevelop the vacant Pier 26 in Tribeca, between North Moore and Laight Streets, into a science center and park space, according to The New York Times. Last week, it was announced that Rafael Viñoly will be designing the education and research facility, and OLIN will be the landscape designer. The $30 million project is being equally funded by Citigroup, the City, and, pending request, the LMDC. Completion is expected by early 2019.
