Scaffolding and black netting shroud the façades of 110 and 112 Liberty Street in preparation for the demolition of the Financial District structures. The site is located across the street from Four World Trade Center, aka 150 Greenwich Street, and sits adjacent to the intersection of Liberty Street and Church Street. The pair of buildings will soon make way for a ground-up 30-story hotel designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects and developed by Eddie Hidary of 112 Liberty Associates LLC, which filed demolition permits in March.
A photo from across the street shows the current state of the property.
The new hotel will most likely be built with a reinforced concrete superstructure and yield around 92,300 square feet of space. The proposed edifice will rise 327 feet from the 6,200-square-foot lot, and will contain 230 hotel rooms. The tower will be visible from Zuccotti Park, Liberty Park, and up and down Church Street. The site is positioned across from the doors of the Westfield mall at the World Trade Center, along with nearby access to the PATH train at the Oculus, and the A, C, E, J, Z, R, W, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains between the 16-acre lot and the Fulton Street subway station.
A final rendering, hotel tenant, and completion date for 112 Liberty Street have not been announced yet.
