Steel construction of 74 Trinity Place has topped-out over the Financial District less than a year after work rose above ground level. The new 26-story, 424-foot-tall office building is designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, with Stephen B. Jacobs Group serving as executive architect. The developer is Trinity Real Estate. The total scope of the new tower is around 310,000 square feet, and offices start on the seventh floor. The last piece of steel went up last week in a topping out ceremony hosted by the developers.

Oceanwide apparently planned to build a mixed-use supertall as high as 1,436 feet at 80 South Street (which includes the second site it purchased from Howard Hughes at 163 Front Street).
