It’s up, up, and away for the new residential skyscraper at 23 Park Row, which is now visible from the 9/11 Memorial. The tower is being designed by COOKFOX Architects, and the developers are L&M Development Partners and the J&R Music Store founders, whose business formerly occupied the same site. The structure will soon rise 54 stories into the Lower Manhattan skyline, to a height of 702 feet. The lot sits in between 1 Beekman, aka “The Pearl on The Park,” which has now topped-off, and the 119-year old Park Row Building. The latter is about to be surpassed in height by its new neighbor, most likely by the beginning of August.
Permits have been pre-filed a 35-story mixed-use high rise at 185 Broadway in Manhattan’s Financial District. This is the largest development filed for the area in 2018, at least, so far. The site is located right in the center of the neighborhood, near just about every major train line on the subway system, with the Fulton Street transport hub situated across the street. SL Green Realty is responsible for the project.
Permits have been pre-filed for a 19-story high-rise at 65 Franklin Street in Tribeca, Manhattan. The site is right on the corner of Franklin and Broadway, less than five blocks from the 1, 2, 6, N, Q, R, W, J, and Z trains, and seven blocks from the City Hall Park. Monzer Khafagy of HAP Investments is listed as the project executive responsible for the development.
Permits have been approved for the enlargement of 60 Charlton Street, which will yield a 12-story retail and office building in the Hudson Square neighborhood of Manhattan. The building was formerly known as 163 Varick Street. Kenneth Aschendorf of APF Properties is responsible for the development, after purchasing the lot for $65 million in July 2017.
Permits have already been filed for the construction of a 13-story mixed-use building at the corner of 14th Street and Sixth Avenue in Greenwich Village, and today, YIMBY has the exclusive first look at renderings. ODA Architecture is responsible for the design of 101 West 14th Street / 531 Sixth Avenue, which will feature a deconstructivist façade composed of stacked blocks. The site is right next to the 14th Street and Sixth Avenue subway station entrance, serviced by the 1, 2, 3, F, M, L and Path trains. Union Square is just two blocks away.
