Renderings have been revealed of the two-towered, 1,350-unit mixed-use project planned at 260 South Street, on the Lower East Side. As currently proposed, the towers would stand 69 and 62 stories in height, rising 798 feet and 728 feet to their roofs, respectively. Twenty-five percent of the units would rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery, the Lo-Down reported, and some senior housing will also be incorporated. Plans are still in place to expand the ground-floor retail footprint of the existing 26-story Section 8 residential buildings, called Lands End II, at 265 Cherry Street and 275 Cherry Street, which contain a total of 491 apartments. Renovations will be made to existing park spaces.
Construction has topped out on the 23-story, 120-unit mixed-use building under development at 56 Fulton Street, located on the corner of Cliff Street in the Financial District. Progress on the structure, including façade installation, can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the 128,540-square-foot tower stands 237 feet to its main roof, or 272 feet to the top of its bulkhead. There will be 5,865 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, followed by rental apartments, averaging 797 square feet apiece. Twenty percent of the apartments, or 24 units, will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. The Parkland Group and Socius Development Group are the developers. Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is behind the design and completion is expected next year.
