The pace of progress at 111 Murray Street has been quite rapid since it started to rise into the Tribeca and Lower Manhattan skylines just over a year ago. Now, the construction crane is finally coming down, and the reflective exterior glass façade is beginning to accentuate the sweeping curves of the building’s distinct crown, which covers the mechanical roof and parapet.
YIMBY has been reporting on 111 Murray Street for several years at this point, and after breaking ground in July of 2015, it was at its fifteenth floor at this time last year. By August, it had topped-out, and glass had climbed over halfway up the exterior. Now, almost three months later, the crown is falling into place, and the 58-story and 800-foot-tall tower appears to be on track for an expected 2018 completion, as seen in the latest photographs from Tectonic.
In the southern bounds of Tribeca, to the southwest of the already-completed 56 Leonard, another major tower is nearing the finish line. 111 Murray Street has been topped-out for several months, and now its cladding is following, reaching about fifteen floors below the skyscraper’s pinnacle. The latest photo of progress comes from YIMBY Forumer Streetscaper.
While most of us probably tried to spend Saturday curled up inside, one intrepid YIMBY Forums user braved the snow to check out progress on 111 Murray Street, a new skyscraper rising between West Street and Greenwich Street in TriBeCa.
The last time YIMBY checked in on the new 58-story and 800-foot tall tower coming to 111 Murray Street, the building was just creeping above ground level. Now, a little over two months later, the structure is already climbing past its 15th floor, with the latest update thanks to YIMBY Forumer Kevin LeClerc.
