This week YIMBY checked out 75 Nassau Street, the planned site of a striking tree-topped residential skyscraper designed by ODA and developed by Lexin Capital. Located in the Financial District, the plot from which the 498-foot-tall, 312,000-square-foot tower is due to rise currently sits empty, with no recent signs of activity since the demolition of five buildings that once stood on the land.
Work is finishing up on 151 Mercer Street, the new four-story flagship store for Tory Burch. O’Neil Langan Architects designed the 10,000-square-foot SoHo project, which replaces an old two-story garage that formerly occupied the site. Located between West Houston Street and Prince Street, the building’s dark steel cladding and indented windows give it a sleek, modern look that contrasts with the adjacent brick structures and the cobblestone-street aesthetics of the neighborhood.
