For the second time in 2018, YIMBY has a new look for Five World Trade Center. The latest rendering was found by a reader on the project’s fencing in the Financial District. The image shows a glassy building with a triangular motif reminiscent of the David Childs-designed 1 WTC. The depiction is roughly 70 stories in height, which could indicate yet another supertall is planned for the area.
As construction nears full completion at 19 Dutch in Manhattan’s Financial District, today, the developer has officially launched leasing for the luxury residential tower. Designed by New York’s GKV Architects with SLCE serving as architect of record, the gleaming, glass-clad structure soars 770 feet above Lower Manhattan.
Last December, YIMBY revealed the renderings for 399 Sands Street in the Brooklyn Navy Yard Industrial Park. Now, the official groundbreaking for the nine-story office building has occurred. The structure will house between 700 to 1,000 jobs once complete. It is part of the $1 billion redevelopment project dedicated to fueling New York City’s economy with infrastructure for 10,000 new jobs in manufacturing and creative businesses. The non-profit Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (BNYDC) is realizing the project through private developers, and Steiner NYC is responsible for 399 Sands Street.
