An updated design has been submitted to the Landmarks Preservation Commission for 312-322 Canal Street, in the West Tribeca Historic District. The site is currently occupied by a two-story retail space, owned by the developer, Trans World Equities. An initial design proposal was submitted in 2011 by Paul A. Castrucci Architect, but was denied by the LPC after being deemed too bland for the area.
An updated rendering has been revealed for a potential residential tower at 15-19 West 96th Street, on the Upper West Side. The property is situated two lots west of Central Park and offers 60 feet of curb frontage.

That could increase up to 10.0 thanks to a potential community facility bonus. The current asking price is $45 million.
