1 Park Row Surpasses Halfway Mark in Manhattan’s Financial District

1 Park Row. Designed by Fogarty Finger.

Construction is nearing topping out on 1 Park Row, a 23-story mixed-use building in Lower Manhattan’s Financial District. Designed by Fogarty Finger Architects and developed by Circle F Capital, which received a $90 million construction loan from Parkview Financial in 2021, the 305-foot-tall structure will yield 103,000 square feet with 58 condominium units in one- to three-bedroom layouts, along with 19,000 square feet of office and retail space on the lower levels. Cauldwell Wingate is the general contractor and 1 Park Row Development LLC is the owner of the property, which is located at the intersection of Park Row and Ann Street.

Work has progressed rapidly in the month since our last update, when crews were just nearing the halfway mark. The reinforced concrete superstructure is now closing in on the final floors and will likely top out before the end of summer. The building features a triangular massing with a curved corner on the western edge, and rises uniformly up to a lone setback on the 23rd story. Installation of the glass curtain wall and reflective metal paneling has yet to begin, and likely won’t commence until after the structure tops out.

1 Park Row will stand as the shortest building in the block, which features a mix of old and new towers such as Rogers Stirk Harbour + PartnersNo. 33 Park Row, COOKFOX‘s 25 Park Row, and the historic 15 Park Row directly to the north.

1 Park Row is located near several transportation centers, providing convenient access to nearly every subway line. These include the Fulton Transit Center on the corner of Fulton Street and Broadway, Santiago Calatrava’s Oculus at the World Trade Center, and additional stations at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge, City Hall, and Chambers Street.

YIMBY anticipates 1 Park Row to be completed around mid-2024.

  1. Hmm, like a modern Flatiron Building. I like it! Notable is how many units (58), plus office and retail space they got into just a 3-sided 23 story building, when supertalls over 100 stories sometimes have less. Other developers should take note. I’m sure the units will go fast and be within middle class ranges.

  2. J&R RIP.

    • J+R was a cool store that I wish woyld reopen even if difficult in the Amazon age. It has been closed for years though.

      • Yes, indeed. J&R was a great music store. We visited it every time we were in New York. Then we’d walk partly across the Brooklyn Bridge or over to the WTC.

      The shortest but look in little farther the building can be hidden beautifully, is there anything else that I haven’t seen. Oh! I found it here it is a curved corner on the western edge, as if surrounded by curves which does not see the end: Thanks to Michael Young.

  3. It’s not a bad looking building, but it seems there is already a massive amount of inventory in FIDI. Also wonder if any of the units have any type of decent view.

  4. Should have been taller to cover up the side of the park row building. When can we get rid of FAR for new buildings? We could fit several more units of housing there!

  5. They should have built the new building in 2016 then open the building in 2018 because jr music world close down in 2014 but no they started building the the building in 2022 open 2024 that bad so they nothing to the building for the last 5 or 7 years that bad for real!

  6. I miss J&R. I was en there on 9 11 when the south tower came down

    I bought many things at J & R and now use B & H. I wonder whether the use of a masonry facade might have fit in better with its neighbor to the north. I believe that was the tallest in the world briefly during the great NYC race to have that title c. 1900.

  8. Very Nice

  9. Wish it were twice as tall!

    I can remember the fire and explosion on that corner in 1969.
