In an exclusive reveal, today, YIMBY has the scoop on the renderings for Howard Hughes‘ planned supertall at 250 Water Street on the edge of the Financial District in the South Street Seaport, designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill. There has been much speculation about whether the full-block development could reach supertall status with the transfer of 700,000 square feet in air rights, which would make it the tallest structure in Lower Manhattan, after One and Three World Trade Center, with diagrams indicating a total height just shy of 1,052 feet.
Exterior work is wrapping up on 100 Franklin Street in Tribeca, a residential building designed, developed, and built by DDG. The intricate 200-foot-long stretch of hand-laid Petersen Tegl bricks that enclose the main six- and eight-story eastern profile is complete, revealing a number of subtle and distinctive details. The development is located in the Tribeca East Historic District on a narrow triangular property and yields a total of ten full-floor residences. Douglas Elliman is in charge of sales for the units, which range from 1,427 to 3,673 square feet.
Work on the installation of the glass and brick fenestration for 460 Main Street, aka Riverwalk 8, has reached the roof parapet. Now most of the activity has shifted to finishing the ground-floor exterior of the 21-story, 341-unit building, located on Roosevelt Island and designed by Handel Architects. This will be the eighth component in the nine-building Riverwalk Park rental complex, which is developed as a joint venture between Related Companies and Hudson Companies.
On Tuesday, May 5, the Landmarks Preservation Commission is scheduled to review proposals to renovate a historic townhouse at 11 Cranberry Street in Brooklyn Heights.

Demolition has been gradually progressing at 10-20 West 57th Street in Midtown, the site of a proposed 52-story skyscraper from Skidmore Owings & Merrill and Solow Realty & Development Group. Located on Billionaires’ Row between Fifth Avenue and Sixth Avenue, the new development will rise 672 feet and contain 383,000 square feet, according to permits filed in February of 2019. The majority of the structure would be devoted to residential space, with 202,738 feet spread across 80 units.
