Last week, YIMBY was taken on a tour of 175 Greenwich Street, aka 3 World Trade Center, visiting the rooftop, the terrace, and the lobby. The building, located in the heart of the Financial District, has made incredible progress, with the façade now complete save for windows connected to the exterior hoist. Interior work is also approaching the finish line.
Construction is wrapping up at the 63-story residential tower at 19 Dutch Street, formerly known as 118 Fulton Street, in the Financial District. The last time YIMBY covered the structure, it had just topped-out. Now, work is nearly complete, with the façade almost entirely installed. For now, the exterior hoist remains up, and installation of interiors is ongoing. Carmel Partners is responsible for the development.
Earlier last week, YIMBY got the opportunity to see the mountainous Midtown neighborhood, the rising towers in Queens, and the Upper East Side from the penthouse of 252 East 57th Street. The full-floor apartment had two terraces on the Northwest and Southeast edges of the building, from which we were given an eye-to-eye look at several high-rises on the rise.
An updated rendering has been revealed for a potential residential tower at 15-19 West 96th Street, on the Upper West Side. The property is situated two lots west of Central Park and offers 60 feet of curb frontage. The Cushman and Wakefield firm has been retained exclusively to facilitate the sale of the site, which sits in an R9 zone and currently has an allowable residential FAR of 7.52. That could increase up to 10.0 thanks to a potential community facility bonus. The current asking price is $45 million.
A new rendering has been revealed for 555 West 22nd Street, owned by Related Companies, confirming YIMBY’s last report on its future as a residential building. The West Chelsea lot is currently occupied by low-rise commercial and residential structures as well as a U-Haul lot, however demolition permits were filed in February of last year. Related acquired these properties and adjacent air rights for a total of $234 million.
