Last week, YIMBY posted an update on construction at 175 Greenwich Street, aka Three World Trade Center, as the tower reached its halfway point, having risen 41/80 stories. Now we have new information that the building has in fact seen a height reduction from the previous version, dropping from 1,168 feet down to 1,079 feet, and we also have two new renderings of the podium.
Extell was the city’s first developer to put up a residential building of 1,000 feet or greater, and while the construction of One57 was fraught with complications, practice will hopefully make perfect. Despite initial difficulties and buckling streets, the latest photos from Tectonic show One Manhattan Square is now making major headway, at 250 South Street.
A combination of landmarking and unusual manufacturing zoning have frozen Soho in the early 20th century, but every once in a while, a developer scoops up a non-contextual and underutilized property hidden among the cast iron 19th century facades. One of those builders, KUB Capital, has filed plans to erect an eight-story, six-unit building at 146 Wooster Street, between West Houston and Prince Street.
The Financial District’s rapid transformation from an office to a residential neighborhood has been immensely beneficial to Lower Manhattan, and the area’s recent boom has been mostly free of architectural casualties. But that’s about to change thanks to demolition beginning on the old vestry at 68-74 Trinity Place, which will soon be removed to make way for a new Pelli Clarke Pelli-designed mixed-use building standing almost 500 feet tall.
Last year, Chinatown-based developer Urban Muse snapped up one of the last major development sites near City Hall, 1 Beekman Street, for $52 million. Now SLCE Architects has filed plans for a 25-story residential tower on the site, also known as 33-34 Park Row.
