Work is moving along on 120 Water Street, a topped-out, 28-story project from Gene Kaufman Architects and Atlas Hospitality in the Financial District. The 52,000-square-foot building will contain a Hotel Indigo with 128 rooms managed by Fortuna Realty Group.
Among the tallest new construction projects in Lower Manhattan is 45 Park Place, a 667-foot-tall residential building in Tribeca. Designed by SOMA Architects with Ismael Leyva Architects as the executive and residential architect, progress was swift on the reinforced concrete structure throughout much of 2019, but work halted toward the end of the year and has yet to resume. The 43-story building is being developed by Sharif el-Gamal of Soho Properties with Piero Lissoni as the interior designer.
Demolition has finished at 561 Greenwich Street in Hudson Square, the site of a 19-story commercial building. Designed by COOKFOX Architects, the 260,000-square-foot project will add 199,353 square feet of office space to the booming neighborhood. Hines is serving as development manager and Trinity Church Wall Street is listed as the owner on permits filed last November.
Permits have been filed for a 17-story mixed-use building at 540 Third Avenue in Murray Hill, Manhattan. Located between East 36th Street and Third Avenue, the corner lot is also addressed as 162 East 36th Street. The development is a short walk to the 33rd Street subway station, serviced by the 6 train. Robert Gilardian of Gilar Realty is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The first portion of 100 Vandam Street‘s expansion has emerged from behind the black construction netting that covers the 300-foot-tall building in Hudson Square. Designed by COOKFOX and developed by Jeff Greene, construction has topped out on the 25-story mixed-use project, which rises above the 132-year-old red brick walls of a former coal power plant.
