The new Four Seasons Hotel and Residences at 30 Park Place is making rapid vertical progress, and the Robert A.M. Stern-designed building is now passing its shorter neighbors. Silverstein is developing the 67-story skyscraper, which will soon become the tallest residential tower in Lower Manhattan.
As of the last update, from one month ago, the tower was it its fourth floor; now that superstructure work has passed the podium levels, the building has begun to shoot upwards. 30 Park Place is now rising at the rate of two floors per week, with the simplified floor plans aiding the speed of construction.
The most recent permits indicate that the 937-foot tower will have 179 hotel rooms and 159 condominiums, with residences starting on the 24th floor; a mechanical level will separate the building’s components. Construction should continue at the current pace for the remainder of the tower’s rise, which means that 30 Park Place could potentially be topped-out before the end of 2014.
A new teaser website for the building is also up; while no new renderings have been released, it does have a penthouse view, captured in the below screen-grab. With the highest residences in the building located over 900 feet above street level, the vistas will be impressive and unobstructed — though the rapidly-rising 56 Leonard will eventually intrude on the panorama, albeit in a positive way, since the Herzog & de Meuron-designed tower will be an architectural marvel.
Completion of 30 Park Place is expected in 2015.
