Back in December, YIMBY reported that an LLC filed applications for a new development at 440 Washington Street, in Tribeca. And now, we have the first renderings of the residential project, which is being developed by Ponte Equities and designed by OCV Architects.
In the first half of 2014, YIMBY reported on building applications for a nearly 600-foot-tall luxury residential tower at 45 Park Place, in Tribeca, and later that year, we revealed preliminary renderings of the project. Now, Bloomberg Business has the latest news on the tower, as well as an update on the design. The building will have 43 actual stories and will top out 667 feet above street level, up from the 39-story and 597-foot figures reported earlier. The latest filings call for 50 condominiums, and at least 15 will reportedly be full-floor units measuring 3,200 to 3,700 square feet. The 134,304 square-foot building will also incorporate 1,089 square feet of ground-floor retail.
The Amirian Group and Bridgeton Holdings have begun converting the former 10-story, 50,000 square-foot office building at 396 Broadway, in Tribeca, into a 171-key hotel, according to Crain’s. Rooms will start at $200 per night, which is reportedly below the city’s average of $231. DXA Studio is designing the conversion, and a soft opening is expected at the end of 2016.
Over the summer, YIMBY revealed renderings for Related Companies’ planned 13-story, 47-unit residential building at 70 Vestry Street (aka 264 West Street), in Tribeca, and now the developer has landed $200 million in construction loans, provided by Bank of America. The building will measure 154,019 square feet in total, and includes roughly 800 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Robert A.M. Stern is designing, while Ismael Leyva is serving as the architect of record. Demolition permits have already been approved to raze the site’s existing tenement and low-rise buildings.
Do what the Landmarks Preservation Commission asks and you shall receive its blessing. So was the case for the hotel planned for 456 Greenwich Street, sitting partly in the TriBeCa North Historic District. The proposal went before the commission in early August, but the brick choice and square fenestrations didn’t fly. So, the applicant was forced to come back. They did so on Tuesday and had perhaps the most pain-free experience in this journalist’s experience with the LPC.
Back in July, YIMBY posted that 56 Leonard was topping-out, and now the tower’s scaffolding seems to be disappearing from its uppermost floors, revealing the cantilevered levels at the very top. The remainder of the tower’s glass will first be installed across the penthouse levels, spiraling downwards to meet the glass that’s already appeared along the mid-section.
