Permits have been filed for a new 30-story hotel at 112 Liberty Street, in the Financial District. The site sits directly across from 150 Greenwich Street and the World Trade Center complex by the intersection of Church Street and Liberty Street. It will be designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects and yield around 92,300 square feet of newly built space. Demolition of the current low-rise buildings will have to begin before excavation and construction on the new skyscraper can begin. The new skyscraper is proposed to be 327 feet tall and will be the tallest building on that parcel of land.
Flying under the radar for some time, excavation work on 159 Broadway Avenue is beginning to make some progress in Williamsburg. Today, YIMBY also has the first rendering for the impressively-scoped project, thanks to the construction fencing. Situated across from Peter Luger Steakhouse and immediately south of the Williamsburg Bridge, the site sits adjacent to the Williamsburgh Savings Bank. The 144-year old landmarked, domed structure will soon be surpassed by its future 133,340 square foot, 277-foot tall neighbor. This upcoming tower is set to become one of the tallest buildings in the neighborhood. It is being designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects and is being developed by Cornell Realty Management LLC.
