At number 25 on our annual construction countdown is 570 Washington Street, a two-tower residential project currently underway along the Hudson River waterfront in Manhattan’s West Village. Designed by COOKFOX Architects with SLCE Architects as the architect of record and developed by Zeckendorf Development, Atlas Capital, and The Baupost Group, the $1.25 billion complex will consist of 29- and 36-story towers rising 400 and 450 feet, respectively, and will yield an undisclosed number of condominium units and commercial space on the lower levels. ACI VI Clarkson LLC is the owner and AECOM Tishman is the general contractor for the project, which occupies a 1.3-acre block bound by Clarkson Street to the north, West Houston Street to the south, Washington Street to the east, and West Street to the west. The developers acquired the property for $340 million in early 2022 and have projected a $1 billion sellout on the homes.
Below-grade work has progressed steadily since our last update in early May, when crews were just beginning to break ground at the site. Recent photos show the entire plot unearthed with the exception of a dirt mound toward the northern end, and the foundation slab has begun formation at the northeast corner. YIMBY expects foundation work to continue throughout the winter followed by the emergence of the superstructure next spring.

The rendering in the main photo shows 570 Washington Street from the south, with the taller tower standing to the west along West Street. The buildings feature a lively design incorporating numerous stepped setbacks, which will be topped with landscaped terraces, as well as pocketed corner terraces and balconies. The structures’ large square windows will provide residents with panoramic views of the Midtown skyline to the north, the Lower Manhattan skyline and the New York Harbor to the south, and the Hudson River, Jersey City, and Hoboken to the west. Both towers are capped with tall mechanical bulkheads.
The nearest subways are the 1 train at the Houston Street station to the east along Varick Street, as well as the C and E trains at the Spring Street station to the southeast.
570 Washington Street’s anticipated completion date is scheduled for December 2026, as noted on site
