The hotel at 6 Water Street in the Financial District, slated to stand 29 stories tall, has reached its eighth floor. The future 249 room establishment, designed by Gene Kaufman, is located near the southern tip of Manhattan, making it the southernmost construction project on the island. Only seven highrise buildings claim a latitude further south.
Late last year, YIMBY posted a video featuring renderings of plans for a new 63-story residential tower at 118 Fulton Street. The design featured in the film was originally created for the Lightstone Group, which sold off 112-118 Fulton Street to Carmel Partners last September for $171 million. But while the site’s developer has changed, its appearance has seemingly stayed the same, and a new on-site rendering confirms that a design similar to the one previously posted will be built.
Kevin Shane and New Jersey-based Jeff Jordan Architects have conceptualized a 200-foot tall, 5,000-foot long pedestrian bridge linking Jersey City to Battery Park City, in Downtown Manhattan. Dubbed Liberty Bridge, the link would provide commuters with an alternative to public transit, according to Jersey Digs. The bridge would include both pedestrian and bike lanes, as well as retail spaces, works of art, park space, and solar panels.
Back during the Great Filing Frenzy of September 2014, YIMBY reported on applications that were submitted for a new development at 149 Church Street, on the corner of Warren Street, in Tribeca. And now we have the first two renderings of the project, now known as 30 Warren Street, as well as word that a teaser website is now live with additional details.
Back in December, YIMBY reported that an LLC filed applications for a new development at 440 Washington Street, in Tribeca. And now, we have the first renderings of the residential project, which is being developed by Ponte Equities and designed by OCV Architects.
