58-Story, 157-Unit Condo Tower Rises Above Street Level at 111 Murray Street, TriBeCa

When YIMBY dove into the history of 101-111 Murray Street in TriBeCa earlier this summer, foundation work was underway for a planned 58-story, 157-unit residential tower. Construction on the project is now three stories above street level, as seen in photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by user rbrome. The latest building permits indicate the tower, to rise 800 feet, will encompass 479,278 square feet. The ground floor will host 2,088 square feet of retail, followed by residential units starting on the fourth floor. The apartments, condominiums, should average 2,356 square feet apiece. They will be accompanied by 20,000 square feet of luxury amenities. Fisher Brothers, Witkoff, and New Valley are the developers. Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates is the design architect while Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is serving as the executive architect. MR Architecture + Décor and Rockwell Group are designing the interiors, and Edmund Hollander Landscape Architects is designing the area around the base. Completion is expected in 2018.

Façade Installation Underway on 225 East 39th Street, 36-Story, 372-Unit Residential Tower, Murray Hill

The 36-story, 372-unit residential tower being constructed at 225 East 39th Street, located on Tunnel Exit Street between East 39th and 40th streets in Murray Hill, has topped out since YIMBY’s last update in February, when the structure was 16 stories above street level. Curtain wall installation is now underway on the structure, as seen in photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. The building measures 373,248 square feet in its entirety, and its residential units, which will be rental apartments, should average 922 square feet apiece. Twenty percent of the units, or 75, will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. Amenities include a fitness center, a children’s playroom, tenant lounges, a café, a library, a landscaped courtyard, and a recreational area on the 35th floor. Fisher Brothers is the developer, and Handel Architects is behind the architecture. Completion can probably be expected later this year.


101 Murray Bites the Dust and 111 Murray Street Rises Skyward in Ever-Changing West Tribeca

As befitting one of the planet’s key engines of economic and cultural motion, New York City exists in a state of constant change. This is particularly true for the city’s older, centrally located neighborhoods, such as TriBeCa. Over the past two centuries, its western portion along West Street has been repeatedly transformed beyond recognition, particularly by the 1960s urban renewal program that completely cleared dozens of formerly-vibrant blocks. But even there, a 32-year building life span is short by any measure.
