Since we last checked up on the Financial District site of 77 Greenwich (aka 42 Trinity Place) last October, excavation has completely wrapped, and foundation work has begun in earnest on the imminently 40-story and 500-foot-tall tower. The project is being designed by FX Collaborative and developed by Trinity Place Holdings.
The steel superstructure for 68-74 Trinity Place is now rising quickly into the Financial District’s neighborhood skyline. Designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, with Stephen B. Jacobs Group as the executive architect, the 26-story building is being developed by Trinity Real Estate, and will include around 310,000 square feet of rentable office space that will start from the seventh floor and continue up to the top of the nearly 500-foot-tall tower.
Located in the northeastern corner of Maiden Lane and Front Street, just south of the South Street Seaport District in Lower Manhattan, construction on 151 Maiden Lane is wrapping up, with the cladding of its tinted and angled blue glass now fully enclosing the building.
Concrete is finally starting to rise for the soon-to-be 800-foot tall residential tower at 130 William Street in the Financial District. The building has surpassed the significant brunt of foundational work, and is now beginning to progress above ground level. Sir David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates is responsible for the design.
For the second time in 2018, YIMBY has a new look for Five World Trade Center. The latest rendering was found by a reader on the project’s fencing in the Financial District. The image shows a glassy building with a triangular motif reminiscent of the David Childs-designed 1 WTC. The depiction is roughly 70 stories in height, which could indicate yet another supertall is planned for the area.
