Five buildings have now been demolished at 75-83 Nassau Street, just a block away from the Fulton Street transportation hub in the center of the Financial District. The activity will make way for Lexin Capital’s proposed 40-story residential skyscraper designed by ODA. New building permits are still awaiting approval, but recent activity on site suggests increasing momentum toward actual construction.
Last month, YIMBY toured the sales gallery for 125 Greenwich Street as the first in a series of skyline updates going live this week. Construction is moving quickly, and last we saw, the tower had risen over two-dozen floors, and nearly 300 feet, above ground. That leaves plenty of height left to grow before it makes an impact on the Lower Manhattan skyline. Famed architect Rafael Viñoly is responsible for the design.
Construction is well underway for what will eventually become the Financial District’s tallest residential tower, a 64-story supertall at 45 Broad Street. Thanks to a reader providing an overview photograph, we can see that trucks are currently removing debris from the site, and reports indicate that concrete trucks are also moving in and out, indicating that excavation is now in full swing. Drilling for the foundational piers has already started. Pizzarotti LLC is responsible for building and developing the tower, along with Madison Equities and AMS Acquisitions.
One of the most significant houses of worship in New York City history is about to receive a $98.6 million renovation that will partially close the church for nearly two years. Trinity Church has long been a landmark to the Financial District, which is why the Church Leadership considers the project vital.
With each passing day, the World Trade Center is getting closer to completion. At 3 World Trade Center, major progress has been made toward completion, and we now have new details on the Financial District’s latest outdoor terrace. Larry Silverstein’s Silverstein Properties partnered with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for the development.
