Renderings have been revealed for the rooftop recreation terrace on top of Brooklyn Point, located at 138 Willoughby Street, in Downtown Brooklyn. Swimmers will be able to look over the East River to Downtown and Midtown Manhattan, and once complete, it will be the highest residential infinity pool in the Western Hemisphere. The tower rises up 720 feet, nearly a hundred feet higher than the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and its rooftop pool in Singapore. Matthews Nielsen Landscape Architects will be responsible for the site, which also includes a sundeck, outdoor dining area, changing room and showers, and outdoor movie screening space.
New renderings are out for 540 Hudson Street, a seven-story mixed-use building proposed in Greenwich Village. The site is two blocks away from the Christopher Street Station, serviced by the PATH Train, and the Christopher Street Subway Station, serviced by the 1 and 2 trains. The project would fill a vacant lot in the heart of the village. Morris Adjmi Architects will be responsible for the undulating design.
Images are out now for the redesigned penthouse in 100 Barclay Street, an Art Deco skyscraper adjacent to One World Trade Center on the southern edge of Tribeca. The 32-story building, originally known as the Barclay-Vesey Building, opened in 1927, designed by architect Ralph Walker. During the September 11th attack, the building suffered heavy damage on its southern and eastern facades. Tishman Realty & Construction led its repairs, with William F. Collins responsible for the restoration. The project was finished in three years at a cost of $1.4 billion, whereby all ornamental details and carving motifs were fixed. Since then, the upper floors have been converted to condominiums.
