Silverstein’s 30 Park Place is making quick progress, after construction resumed at the end of last year; the superstructure is climbing quickly, and should pass 56 Leonard shortly. The Robert A.M. Stern-designed Four Seasons Hotel and Residences will eventually stand 67 stories and 937 feet tall.
New permits have also been filed for the project, indicating a shift in the amount of space allotted to the building’s different uses. The hotel has been reduced to the tower’s first 22 floors, with 179 rooms in total; that number has increased from 149 rooms — filed on previous plans — despite the component’s vertical compaction.
There has also been a slight change to the number of residences, with the condominium component expected to have 159 units, down from 161. The shifts in both sections are relatively trivial; in terms of raw square footage, the hotel will measure just under 219,000 square feet, while the residences will spread over 387,000 square feet.
Progress on 30 Park Place will accelerate soon, as the concrete passes the relatively complicated lower levels, which will be devoted to common spaces and mechanical elements. After the fifth story — which includes three outdoor terraces — floor-plans become more standardized.
It won’t be long before the new Four Seasons begins to make an impact on the skyline, becoming Downtown’s tallest residential tower in the process. Completion is expected in 2015.
