Construction has topped out on 456 Greenwich Street, a 110-foot-tall, eight-story hotel building in Tribeca. Developed by Caspi Development and designed by Stephen B. Jacobs Group with Martin Brudnizki Design Studio as the interior designer, the 94,000-square-foot structure will yield 96 guest rooms operated by Groupe Lucien Barrière of the Hôtel Barrière Le Fouquet’s Paris. The site is bound by Greenwich Street to the east, Desbrosses Street to the south, and Washington Street to the west. More than three years passed from groundbreaking to topping out due to numerous delays stemming from legal disputes and financial issues, though it appears that the project is finally back on track.
Recent photos show the reinforced concrete superstructure covered with orange netting and wooden railings, while sidewalk scaffolding and metal fences surround the ground floor. The building will eventually receive a curtain wall of brick masonry and windows with dark-colored mullions, a design that contextually adheres to and draws inspiration from the historical charm of the Tribeca neighborhood.
An aerial photograph looking south at 456 Greenwich Street shows the stepped building massing with concrete formwork attached to the northern perimeter wall of the edifice. Narrow walkways are strung across this side of the structure, while a large amount of metal shoring supports can be seen holding up the upper floor slabs. The exterior hoist is attached to the short western elevation.
The last reported details of amenities at 456 Greenwich Street included six food and drinks spots, an interior courtyard measuring 1,500 square feet, a spa, a fitness center, a meeting space, a rooftop pool, and an alleged screening room that can hold over 100 people, the largest such theater in Lower Manhattan.
A revised completion date for 456 Greenwich Street was announced for June 2022.
