Work on the reflective exterior glass curtain wall of 74 Trinity Place is now less than ten floors away from reaching the tower’s 424-foot tall roof parapet. Now topped-out 26 stories above the Financial District, the project is being designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and developed by Trinity Real Estate. Stephen B. Jacobs Group is the executive architect.

Recent photos show the progress on the 310,000-square foot skyscraper.

The first five floors will contain the Trinity Church Parish Center, a gymnasium, a music room, meeting rooms and program space. This will also include access to Trinity Church across the street via the pedestrian bridge on the third floor. Right now, the steel bridge has been temporarily closed until construction is finished. This will lead directly to the back entrance of Trinity Church.

Offices inside the building will be located on the sixth and eighth floors. Tenants will move in this October. Meanwhile, Trinity Church is simultaneously undergoing a two-year renovation process of the historic interiors. It will most likely finish around the same time 74 Trinity Place is complete.

Full completion of 74 Trinity Place is expected sometime by the end of 2019, to early 2020 at the very latest.

  1. The CookFox design was so much better

  2. That 125 Greenwich doesn’t work for me at all

    The base of 74 Trinity looks great, but the glassy curtain wall above is pretty ordinary. The building that used to be there was very nice from top to bottom, if it had to be torn down, the least the developers could have done was to make the new building as interesting as the old one was. It looks like they only partially succeeded.

  4. It’s a handsome building.
    it shouldn’t have replaced the impressive prewar that it replaced.

  5. excusez-moi  for Using your space.

  6. Congratulations Laverne for all your work on this outstanding new project next to the World Trade Tower. You will have to show me the project some time this year with a trip down to NYC. Grandpa Bruyn & Audrey…
