25 Park Row‘s curtain wall is continuing to rise and wrap around the balconies and upper floors of the 702-foot-tall Financial District skyscraper, the 27th tallest structure in our annual YIMBY countdown. The 50-story mixed-use project is designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by L+M Development Partners, along with the family behind J&R Music World. Sales for the 110 residences are ongoing and are being handled by Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group.

Photos show the progress on the top half of the edifice, the crown, and closeups of details in the façade. The skyscraper incorporates a range of subtle architectural appointments including the rounded corners and columns of the balconies, dark window frames, and black railings contrasting the warm-toned, hand-cast stone panels. The lower setbacks step upward toward the adjacent 391-foot-tall, 120-year-old 15 Park Row.

The lower floors of 25 Park Row will contain 60,000 square feet of divisible rentable office and retail space. The first, second, third, and fourth floors have 120 linear feet of street frontage, and upper- and lower-level space. Retail occupants get shared elevator access and the ability to add elevators and escalators upon request. Meanwhile, future office tenants will have access to their space via a private lobby with 18-foot-high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and two passenger elevators that are found when entering from the Park Row elevation. Bicycle storage will be among the building’s Class A amenities. Cushman & Wakefield is handling leasing and marketing for the commercial space.

Completion of 25 Park Row is expected next spring.

  1. Perfect example of “tower envy”!

    I prefer the classical building of 15 instead of the wannabe of 25, but wonder if those in 15 get a discount on their apartments, due to the concrete slabs of 25 that block all the windows from the side of 15? Who determines the right of one building closing off the other one’s views and sunlight? Is is $?

  2. Missing the days when J&R took up the entire block front here and sold just about ‘everything’..but l guess sooner or later Real Estate conquers all.

    • Why in the world would you miss J&R? Are you forgetting the byzantine system for ordering with a salesperson upstairs and then having to take your triplicate form down to the basement, hand it off to someone who takes the pink sheet, files the yellow sheet, and gives you the green sheet to give to the person that retrieves your order from a conveyor belt. That place deserved to die.

  3. I like the juxtaposition between 15 and 25 Park Row. As to the loss of view/light, I believe there was a relatively tall structure adjacent to 15 Park Row previously. At a minimum, I’m sure there’s a minimally-required light well provided by 25 PR. I’m guessing 15’s adjacent units have been reconfigured over the years in anticipation of this eventuality.
