Façade Installation Takes Shape on 59 Henry Street in Two Bridges, Manhattan

59 Henry Street. Designed by S9 Architecture

Façade installation is taking shape on 59 Henry Street, a 19-story mixed-use building in Two Bridges, Manhattan. Designed by S9 Architecture and developed by W & L Group, the 227-foot-tall structure will span nearly 98,000 square feet and yield 80 rental units with an average scope of 714 square feet, as well as 40,305 square feet of community facility space on the first five stories, 26 enclosed parking spaces, a penthouse, and a cellar level. The property is located on a 17,500-square-foot interior lot between Catherine and Market Streets.

Exterior work has progressed gradually since our last update in late August, when the reinforced concrete superstructure had recently topped out and stood completely exposed. New photographs most of the building clad in its envelope of floor-to-ceiling windows and dark metal paneling, with only a handful of upper levels and the bulkhead waiting to be enclosed. The remaining façade work and installation of the glass railings on the structure’s numerous angled balconies will likely finish up sometime this summer.

The main rendering depicts the façade composed of lighter gray paneling, but otherwise accurately previews the final look of the building. Metal paneling will run vertically between the cascading balconies, connecting them in a diagonally stepped pattern across the main elevation. This design touch will create an interesting play of light and shadow when viewed from the east on Henry Street.

The nearest subway from the property is the local F train at the East Broadway station to the north.

59 Henry Street’s anticipated completion date is slated for the fall of 2025, as noted on site.

    New York has never shied away from designing unconventional, but beautiful facades: Thanks.

  2. The setback is garbage. I really dislike it.

    This is looking pretty good and it’s great another surface lot goes away. But I hate the building is set back from the street wall.

  4. The waterproofing contractor must be really happy about his contract, but won’t be so happy after years of maintenance calls for leaks.

  5. Thank heaven, more unaffordable apartments. Keep ’em coming!! NYC is desperate for housing out of most people’s price range.
