After years of waiting, 45 Park Place is finally making a rapid ascent into the Lower Manhattan skyline. The skyscraper will soon rise 43 stories and 667 feet to its rooftop pinnacle, and is being developed by Sharif el-Gamal’s Soho Properties. Although substantially shorter than nearby towers like 30 Park Place, 56 Leonard Street, and 111 Murray Street, the 50-unit structure will still offer comprehensive views of Tribeca to the north, Brooklyn, the Manhattan Bridge, and City Hall to the east, and the World Trade Center, immediately to the south.
As The Brooklyn Grove continues to rise in Brooklyn’s buzzing Downtown metro-center, new renderings reveal both interiors and exteriors of the forthcoming residential tower. Located at 10 Nevins Street in Downtown Brooklyn, the structure will rise 27 stories and comprise 184 condominiums that range in size from studios to three-bedrooms.
