Located to the south of the New York Stock Exchange on a narrow rectangular strip of land along Broad Street, the Financial District’s first residential supertall will soon rise at 45 Broad Street. The tower will eventually soar 1,115 feet above the crowded streets of Lower Manhattan, and should make a very dramatic impact on the skyline in the coming years. Clad with bronze-colored aluminum panels and an intricate mix of sleek vertical and curved lines, it is the 5th-tallest skyscraper currently under construction in New York City. CetraRuddy is the architect, while the developers are Madison Equities and Pizzarotti LLC.
125 Greenwich Street shot up with great speed in 2018, and is the 16th-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City. Now, it has only a few floors remaining before its 912-foot pinnacle is reached above the Financial District. The 88-story tower is being designed by Rafael Vinoly and developed by Bizzi & Partners and Vector Group, while the marketing of the 273 residential units is being handled by Douglas Elliman. Interiors are being designed by March & White.
New renderings have been revealed for 185 Broadway, which is imminently set to rise in Lower Manhattan. Designed by FX Collaborative Architects and developed by SL Green, the 31-story, 260,000 square foot, mixed-use and partially affordable building has had its site prep completed, as demolition of three previously extant low-rise structures at 183 Broadway, 187 Broadway, and 5-7 Dey Street has fully wrapped. Necessary air rights and financing to begin construction have also been obtained, and work is anticipated to start in the first quarter of 2019.
A decade-old plan to redesign the wedge of land known as Peck Slip Park is now scheduled for review by the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission. Located between South Street and Water Street in Manhattan’s Financial District, Peck Slip Park measures about .65 acres and is surrounded by a school, a hotel, a parking lot, and a Con Edison electrical facility.
In the lead-up to 2019, YIMBY will be checking in on each of the Five Borough’s 30 tallest towers currently under construction. Standing at the bottom of the list is One Seaport, aka 161 Maiden Lane, which is a notable presence on the Lower Manhattan skyline when seen from the Brooklyn Bridge, or any view facing west towards the Seaport District. The slender new 60-story and 670-foot-tall residential skyscraper recently topped-out, and curtain wall installation is making substantial headway. Spanning 200,000 square feet, the project is being designed by Hill West Architects, developed by Fortis Property Group, LLC and constructed by Pizzarotti LLC. The interiors are being designed by Groves & Co. Sales and marketing are being carried out by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing.
