Construction is moving along quickly for two new towers on City Hall Park. The park is one of just three major public outdoor areas in the Financial District, making any development around it particularly important. The buildings photographed for this article are 25 Park Row and 1 Beekman Street, which will add a combined 142 new condominiums and nearly 67,000 square feet of commercial space to the neighborhood.
Permits have been filed for a 46-story mixed-use high rise along Queens’ East River waterfront, overlooking Manhattan. The structure will rise at 52-41 Center Boulevard, in the Hunters Point neighborhood. The project is part of TF Cornerstone’s Hunters Point South Towers, and will be the shorter of two new skyscrapers.
Last week, YIMBY was taken on a tour of 175 Greenwich Street, aka 3 World Trade Center, visiting the rooftop, the terrace, and the lobby. The building, located in the heart of the Financial District, has made incredible progress, with the façade now complete save for windows connected to the exterior hoist. Interior work is also approaching the finish line.
Construction is wrapping up at the 63-story residential tower at 19 Dutch Street, formerly known as 118 Fulton Street, in the Financial District. The last time YIMBY covered the structure, it had just topped-out. Now, work is nearly complete, with the façade almost entirely installed. For now, the exterior hoist remains up, and installation of interiors is ongoing. Carmel Partners is responsible for the development.
Earlier last week, YIMBY got the opportunity to see the mountainous Midtown neighborhood, the rising towers in Queens, and the Upper East Side from the penthouse of 252 East 57th Street. The full-floor apartment had two terraces on the Northwest and Southeast edges of the building, from which we were given an eye-to-eye look at several high-rises on the rise.
