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.

The Margaritaville Resort at 560 Seventh Avenue in Times Square has climbed to the pinnacle. Work on the curtain wall has also moved along quickly and is nearing the upper floors of the reinforced concrete superstructure. Designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects and developed by Sharif El-Gamal of Soho Properties along with MHP Real Estate Services, the nearly $300 million project will help fulfill the booming demand for hotel space as tourism to New York City and areas like Times Square continues to rise. The 29-story tower is located at the corner of Seventh avenue and West 40th Street and will contain 234 rooms.
Construction has topped out at 45 Park Place as the glass curtain wall is continuing to make its way up the 43-story Tribeca superstructure. The cocoon netting has been fully removed revealing the skeleton frame of the stepped crown, which will eventually be covered with glass as well. The 667-foot-tall residential skyscraper is being developed by Sharif el-Gamal of Soho Properties and is designed by SOMA Architects with Ismael Leyva Architects serving as the executive and residential architect. Sales of the units, which feature interiors designed by Piero Lissoni, are being handled by Corcoran Sunshine.
