The last time YIMBY checked in on The Lightstone Group’s 130 William Street back in August, excavation work was still underway, as the exteriors of neighboring buildings were also being faced in a protective covering.

50 West Street’s Pedestrian Improvements Nearing Completion

Among the new residential towers in Lower Manhattan, 50 West Street has been one of the longest in the making, with plans for the Helmut Jahn-designed project initially conceived prior to the Great Recession. YIMBY most recently featured renderings of an adjacent pedestrian bridge in August of 2016, as well as an update on the almost-complete tower in February of this year.

Today, we have images of the progress by Tectonic, revealing the concrete frame.
