Foundation work is now complete for the 33-story, 271-key Marriott hotel under construction at 151 Maiden Lane, located on the corner of Front Street in the Financial District. The above photo is courtesy of the hotel’s developer, Pizzarotti-IBC. The latest building permits indicate it will encompass 139,891 square feet and stand 341 feet in height. Guest amenities will include a market on the ground floor associated with the hotel, storage for 11 bikes, a lounge, a fitness center, and a terrace on the sixth floor. The hotel rooms will be located on the third, fourth, and sixth through 30th floors. SoHo-based Peter Poon Architects is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2017. YIMBY previously revealed renderings of the project roughly a year ago.
Foundation work is underway on the 57-story, 80-unit residential tower under construction at 161 Maiden Lane, located on the corner of South Street, in the Financial District. The construction photos were taken by the project’s general contractor, Pizzarotti-IBC. Dubbed 1 Seaport, it will measure 192,473 square feet and stand 670 feet over the East River, according to the latest building permits. The residential units will be condominiums, ranging from one- to four-bedrooms, and should average 1,726 square feet apiece. Two duplex penthouses will crown the tower. Amenities include private residential storage, storage for 37 bikes, a lounge on the fourth floor, a fitness center, a children’s playroom, and a lounge, pool, and sauna on the 27th floor. YIMBY has been revealing renderings of the evolving project since 2012, with the latest batch released in the spring. Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the architect, while Groves & Co. is the interior designer. Fortis Property Group is the developer, and construction is expected to be complete in early 2018.
The supertall mixed-use tower planned at 45 Broad Street will shimmer at its apex, over 1,100 feet above the streets of Lower Manhattan. But at ground level, the Financial District project will bring new services to those who won’t even enter the building. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission voted to approve new subway elevators planned on Broad Street.
Earlier this week, YIMBY brought you a new rendering of the mixed-use supertall tower planned at 45 Broad Street, in the Financial District, but now new building applications have been filed with the Department of Buildings. The 371,634-square-foot tower, which has been marketed as 86 stories, will actually have 64 real floors and will stand 1,115 feet above street level. It will also have 150 residential units, which is significantly less than the previous figure of 245. The apartments should average 1,394 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums, and units will come in studio to three-bedroom configurations. There will also be 48,077 square feet of office space on the third through eighth floors. The project’s 20,000 square feet of amenities will be located on three sub-cellar levels and the ninth through eleventh floors. Madison Equities, Pizzarotti-IBC, and AMS Acquisitions are the developers, and CetraRuddy is behind the design. Excavation is expected to begin later this year, with completion of the tower scheduled for 2018.
Back in February, the first renderings were revealed of the planned 86-story, 245-unit mixed-use tower at 45 Broad Street, in the Financial District. The renderings originated from EB-5 materials, as the development team – Madison Equities, Pizzarotti-IBC, and AMS Acquisitions – is hoping to raise $75 million in financing through the program. Now, another rendering of the CetraRuddy-designed project has surfaced via YIMBY Forums, which depicts the tower when viewed from the north (looking southward down Broad Street). New buildings applications haven’t been filed yet, but the 1,100-foot-tall tower will encompass approximately 298,000 square feet. The first five floors should host 50,000 square feet of commercial space, while the apartments above should come in studio to three-bedroom layouts. There will also be 20,000 square feet of amenities. Groundbreaking is expected later this year, and completion is ambitiously scheduled for 2018.
