Last week, YIMBY posted an update on construction at 175 Greenwich Street, aka Three World Trade Center, as the tower reached its halfway point, having risen 41/80 stories. Now we have new information that the building has in fact seen a height reduction from the previous version, dropping from 1,168 feet down to 1,079 feet, and we also have two new renderings of the podium.

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.
Last fall, Chinese developer Cheerland Investments paid a whopping $129 million for the United Charities office building at 287 Park Avenue South, a nine-story Renaissance Revival structure built in 1892. An insider told the Wall Street Journal that it would be converted to condos, and earlier this week, permits were filed for a residential conversion that would add nine stories to the top.
