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.
Work is wrapping up on Fifteen Laight Street, a Class A office conversion and expansion in Tribeca. Designed by Gensler and developed by the Vanbarton Group, the $141 million project involved the addition of two floors atop the former six-story structure, as well as a complete recladding of its exterior with a modern façade of floor-to-ceiling glass and dark metal paneling. The 115,000-square-foot building, which once served as the home of the Tribeca Film Festival, is located between Laight Street and the triangular-shaped Albert Capsouto Park to the north, Varick Street to the south, and the narrow St. Johns Lane to the east. MFS Engineers & Surveyor is the structural engineer overseeing the project.
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.
