Construction is finally moving ahead at 175 Greenwich Street, aka 3 World Trade Center, which will be the third tallest building in the complex. But with momentum picking up across the entire site, and 200 Greenwich Street set to rise thanks to a redesign by Bjarke Ingels/BIG, 175 Greenwich Street has also seen some design changes, and 3 World Trade Center has now lost its spires in favor of a more streamlined roof.
When we last checked in at Silverstein’s 30 Park Place, the 67-story hotel and condo tower had just topped out, becoming the tallest residential building in Lower Manhattan. Now most of the structure has its windows, except for the top 15 stories or so. Cladding has reached even further, and only the five uppermost floors are still naked steel and concrete.
While the city considers rezoning a 20-block-long swath of Jerome Avenue beneath the elevated 4 tracks in the Bronx, developers are starting to bet big on the corridor’s commercial potential. Now two investors who lead 925 Capital Inc. want to sell or jointly redevelop a low-slung garage with retail at 1697-1705 Jerome Avenue, in Morris Heights.
Last December, YIMBY posted applications for Lions Group’s eight-story, 15-unit residential building at 42-83 Hunter Street, in Long Island City, and now The Court Square Blog has spotted on-site renderings of the project. The building will measure 12,335 square feet, which means units will average roughly 820 square feet. Jon Yung’s My Architect is the architect of record, and the site’s former single-story building has been removed. Excavation appears imminent, and completion is slated for Spring 2017.
Last October, construction was making quick progress at the World Trade Center Transit Hub, dubbed the Oculus, and the structure is now receiving its finishing touches. Platform B of the PATH’s WTC station has now opened to the public, and Platform C is currently being reconstructed. According to Curbed, glass installation for the structure’s skylight is also underway.
