Since we last checked up on the Financial District site of 77 Greenwich (aka 42 Trinity Place) last October, excavation has completely wrapped, and foundation work has begun in earnest on the imminently 40-story and 500-foot-tall tower. The project is being designed by FX Collaborative and developed by Trinity Place Holdings.

The site at 68-74 Trinity Place has been one of the more notable recent demolitions in the Financial District, with the building coming down over the course of the past year. The site’s owner, Trinity Church, had previously planned a condominium building designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli. While those plans were shelved earlier this year, we now have new renderings of what will replace it.
After years of planning and months of Landmarks approvals, a 500-foot-tall tower is one step closer to reality at 42 Trinity Place. New building applications were filed over the weekend to erect the 40-story building, which will be formally known as 77 Greenwich Street.
A 35-story mixed-use project in the Financial District can now go forward, thanks to approval from the Landmarks Preservation on Tuesday. The project is at 77 Greenwich Street (a.k.a. 42 Trinity Place) and needed LPC approval because it would cantilever over the Robert and Anne Dickey House, an individual landmark immediately to the south at 67 Greenwich Street (a.k.a. 28-30 Trinity Place). The changes to the design weren’t too dramatic and one of them was described as a “no-brainer” by the LPC chair.
The proposed 500-foot-tall mixed-use building at 77 Greenwich Street (a.k.a. 42 Trinity Place) suffered a setback on Tuesday. The Landmarks Preservation Commission did not vote to approve its proposed cantilevered portions.
