Located at 143 Fulton Street in the Financial District, the new 364-foot-tall and 298-room Moxy hotel is almost complete, with the final exterior finishes underway at the base of the tower. Two entrances to the building are located on Fulton Street and Ann Street, and up above, the project features a dark glass facade atop a four-story podium. SLCE Architects is the architect, while the developer of the nearly 129,000 square foot property is Tribeca Associates. Interiors are being done by Stonehill & Taylor.
It’s up, up, and away for the new residential skyscraper at 23 Park Row, which is now visible from the 9/11 Memorial. The tower is being designed by COOKFOX Architects, and the developers are L&M Development Partners and the J&R Music Store founders, whose business formerly occupied the same site. The structure will soon rise 54 stories into the Lower Manhattan skyline, to a height of 702 feet. The lot sits in between 1 Beekman, aka “The Pearl on The Park,” which has now topped-off, and the 119-year old Park Row Building. The latter is about to be surpassed in height by its new neighbor, most likely by the beginning of August.
While YIMBY normally covers aggregate new building applications on an annual basis, this year, we have released our first mid-year pipeline report, and the results are surprisingly positive. After two years of declining applications following the frenzies of 2014 and 2015, the preliminary numbers for 2018 appear to be signaling a major uptick in activity. Year-over-year filings of new residential units have grown substantially, rising from 9,134 in the first six months of 2017, to 15,305 in 2018 — an increase of 67.5%.
Permits have been pre-filed a 35-story mixed-use high rise at 185 Broadway in Manhattan’s Financial District. This is the largest development filed for the area in 2018, at least, so far. The site is located right in the center of the neighborhood, near just about every major train line on the subway system, with the Fulton Street transport hub situated across the street. SL Green Realty is responsible for the project.
A new hero shot has been revealed for 809 Broadway, a 15-story mixed-use tower rising in Greenwich Village, Manhattan. Construction has topped out, and façade installation is underway, meaning completion by the end of year is likely. The structure is just a few blocks away from Union Square, the fourth busiest subway station in New York in 2017, serviced by the 4, 5, 6, N, Q, R, W, and L trains. IDM Capital is responsible for the development, which hopes to satisfy the demands of the City’s expanding Silicon Alley.
