New renderings and details of 250 Water Street were revealed yesterday, depicting a mixed-use development significantly smaller in size and scope than the supertall previously speculated. Developed by the Howard Hughes Corporation and designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill, the two-tower high rise is a bit underwhelming in contrast to the 1,000-foot-tall design that would have become the tallest structure in lower Manhattan.
Exterior work is nearing completion on the six-story addition atop 60 Charlton Street, an office building in Hudson Square. Alternately addressed as 163 Varick Street, the project is designed by HOK and co-developed by APF Properties, Kenneth Aschendorf, and Berndt Perl, with Stuart Milstein of Drake Street Properties, and brings the structure’s total height to 12 stories and 191 feet tall.
