Renderings from Fogarty Finger Architecture reveal a major renovation and redesign of a through-block commercial lobby at 80 Pine Street in Manhattan’s Financial District. The Rudin Family, owners and original developers of the property, commissioned the architects to complete a brighter, more inviting entry into the Class A office tower.
Construction is approaching topping out at 76 Eighth Avenue, a ten-story office building in Greenwich Village. Designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and developed by Sang Lee, Noviprop, and Plus Development, the 120-foot-tall edifice will yield 30,000 square feet of office space and ground-floor retail. The project site is located at the corner of West 14th Street and Eighth Avenue.
YIMBY went to take a look at 250 Water Street, the site of Howard Hughes‘ planned supertall in the South Street Seaport District. Early renderings from Skidmore Owings & Merrill show the mixed-use skyscraper rising nearly 1,052 feet tall. However, it may be a few years before any progress begins on the Financial District project, which would become the tallest residential building below Canal Street.
External work is complete at 215 Pearl Street, a 38-story hotel in the Financial District. Gene Kaufman Architect, which took over from Nobutaka Ashihara Architects, is the architect of record and designing interiors as well. Lam Group is developing with The Rinaldi Group as the construction manager, the 165,655-square-foot structure will house a Courtyard by Marriott and a Residence Inn by Marriott with a total of 320 guest rooms.
Construction still appears stalled at 45 Park Place, a 667-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Tribeca. Designed by SOMA Architects with Ismael Leyva Architects as the executive and residential architect, the 43-story building has sat dormant since the end of 2019. The project, which is being developed by Sharif el-Gamal of Soho Properties with Piero Lissoni as the interior designer, is located between Church Street and West Broadway and sits just to the north of the border with the Financial District.
