The Landmarks Preservation Commission will this week review updated proposals to renovate an existing commercial office building and construct a ground-up ten-story building at 122 Fifth Avenue in Union Square, Manhattan. The T-shaped property is located within the Ladies Mile Historic District and was originally completed in 1899 by architect Robert Maynicke and real estate developer Henry Corn.
Construction has topped out on 456 Greenwich Street, a 110-foot-tall, eight-story hotel building in Tribeca. Developed by Caspi Development and designed by Stephen B. Jacobs Group with Martin Brudnizki Design Studio as the interior designer, the 94,000-square-foot structure will yield 96 guest rooms operated by Groupe Lucien Barrière of the Hôtel Barrière Le Fouquet’s Paris. The site is bound by Greenwich Street to the east, Desbrosses Street to the south, and Washington Street to the west. More than three years passed from groundbreaking to topping out due to numerous delays stemming from legal disputes and financial issues, though it appears that the project is finally back on track.
YIMBY spotted a couple of never before seen renderings for 267 Broadway, a 510-foot-tall mixed-use building proposed to be constructed in Tribeca. While previous iterations by Gene Kaufman Architect were last seen and revealed in February of 2018, the architecture firm reached out to say that they are no longer working on the project. As of now, The Roe Corporation was last heard to be the developer for the 42-story development. If built according to formerly announced plans, there would be 144,244 square feet of space and feature 37 residential units above an 80-room boutique hotel. The site is located between Chambers Street and Warren Street and is currently occupied by a five-story building.
Excavation is progressing at 561 Greenwich Street, the site of a 19-story, 260,000-square-foot commercial building in Hudson Square. Designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by Hines and Trinity Church Wall Street, the project will yield 199,353 square feet of newly built office space. The site is located between King Street and Charlton Street.
Construction is now complete on 111 Varick Street, a 30-story residential tower in Hudson Square. Designed by S9 Architecture and developed by Extended, the property contains 100 rental units in a mix of studio, one-, and two-bedroom layouts. Pricing begins at $4,000 per month for studio apartments. Compass Development Marketing Group is the exclusive leasing and marketing agent for the property with leasing already having launched at the end of 2020. The building stands at the corner of Varick Street and Broome Street.
