25 Park Row Reaches Halfway Mark Above City Hall Park in Lower Manhattan

It’s up, up, and away for the new residential skyscraper at 23 Park Row, which is now visible from the 9/11 Memorial. The tower is being designed by COOKFOX Architects, and the developers are L&M Development Partners and the J&R Music Store founders, whose business formerly occupied the same site. The structure will soon rise 54 stories into the Lower Manhattan skyline, to a height of 702 feet. The lot sits in between 1 Beekman, aka “The Pearl on The Park,” which has now topped-off, and the 119-year old Park Row Building. The latter is about to be surpassed in height by its new neighbor, most likely by the beginning of August.
