The Landmarks Preservation Commission will again review proposals from Vornado and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners to redevelop and expand an existing building in the city’s West Chelsea Historic District.

Work on One Beekman Street, aka “Pearl on the Park,” is another step closer to completion, as the dark-colored steel frame that will sit in between the floor-to-ceiling windows has begun to go up. This will accentuate the upcoming 25-story apartment building and lend it a more distinctive and detailed appearance. The project is being designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners while Urban Muse is the developer. There will be 31 units inside the 331-foot-tall tower with views overlooking City Hall Park. This will be Richard Rogers’ first residential project in New York City.
Led by Rogers Stirk Harbours + Partners, the UK-based design team has proposed a large development project in the West Historic Chelsea District. Consisting of three adjoining construction sites, the firm is seeking to create a new eleven-story building at 550 West 27th Street, as well as an expanded upper section on top of 260 Eleventh Avenue and an exterior renovation of 549 West 26th Street. The proposal is now under review by the Landmark Preservation Committee as of January 10, 2019.
3 World Trade Center, aka 175 Greenwich Street, opened its doors for the first time on June 11, 2018, with the traditional ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by Silverstein Properties. After a series of guest speakers and live performances, the ribbon was cut at 12:00PM, officially opening the building for business. Designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and developed by Silverstein Properties, the 80-story, 1,079 foot supertall is currently the fifth tallest skyscraper in New York City, and the second tallest at the World Trade Center.
With each passing day, the World Trade Center is getting closer to completion. At 3 World Trade Center, major progress has been made toward completion, and we now have new details on the Financial District’s latest outdoor terrace. Larry Silverstein’s Silverstein Properties partnered with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for the development.
