Few towers have as much separation from the rest of the Manhattan skyline as the Lower East Side’s One Manhattan Square. The building is without competition for views, rising 72 stories above one of New York’s most well-known neighborhoods. The next highest structure in its immediate vicinity is the Manhattan Bridge, which spans the East River into Brooklyn. Extell Development Company is responsible for the development, and Lendlease is responsible for construction.
Last month, YIMBY toured the sales gallery for 125 Greenwich Street as the first in a series of skyline updates going live this week. Construction is moving quickly, and last we saw, the tower had risen over two-dozen floors, and nearly 300 feet, above ground. That leaves plenty of height left to grow before it makes an impact on the Lower Manhattan skyline. Famed architect Rafael Viñoly is responsible for the design.
Located among TriBeCa’s southern-most blocks, 30 Warren Street has officially topped-out. The mixed-use condominium project has peaked at 12 stories above street level, and work is expected to fully wrap by the close of 2019.

Permits have been filed for a three-story commercial building at 559 Park Avenue, in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, near the neighborhood’s border with Williamsburg.
