Work has still yet to finish on the amorphous mirrored “bean” sculpture at the base of 56 Leonard Street, an 821-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Tribeca. The art piece, which sits partially complete between the sidewalk and the cantilevering ceiling of the ground floor by the intersection of Church and Leonard Streets, is the work of Anish Kapoor, the creator of Chicago’s chrome steel-plated Cloud Gate and the ArcelorMittal Orbit from the 2012 London Summer Olympics. Herzog & de Meuron and Hill West Architects are the designers of the tower, one of the tallest structures in Lower Manhattan.
Renovation work has begun at 27 Park Place, a five-story commercial building in Tribeca that has sat vacant for more than three years after suffering extensive damage from a six-alarm fire on September 1, 2017. Empire State Development, LLC is the general contractor for the project, which is located between Church Street and Murray Street.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) has approved the residential redevelopment of a historic mixed-use building at 315 Broadway in Tribeca. The landmarked structure was originally constructed around 1861 and currently contains a small retail component on the ground floor and four loft spaces above.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission has approved proposals to construct a glass-clad rooftop addition at 13 Harrison Street in Manhattan. The property is located within the TriBeCa West Historic District and thus required certificate of appropriateness from the voting commissioners.
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.
