Witkoff Group’s and Fisher Brothers’ Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed luxury tower, planned for Tribeca at 101-111 Murray Street, has been amended to have 157 residential units, up from 139 stated in the original application.

The 372,000 square-foot building will include a nearly 2,100 square-foot retail portion on the ground floor, and completion is expected in 2017.
