YIMBY has another set of illustrative renderings created by Siniaevart that showcase the three alternate conceptual building massings for 250 Water Street, a proposed skyscraper project from The Howard Hughes Corporation in the South Street Seaport District. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill, the full-block development has the potential to use 700,000 square feet of unused air rights to achieve supertall status, which would make it the tallest structure in Lower Manhattan outside of the World Trade Center complex.
250 Water Street
Today, YIMBY has a look at a new set of renderings for 250 Water Street, a mixed-use supertall proposed to rise in Lower Manhattan’s South Street Seaport District. The skyscraper is being designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by The Howards Hughes Corporation, which purchased the land from Milstein Properties in 2018 for $180 million. There are several possible iterations for the building with a range of varying heights and designs, the tallest of which could stand 990 feet. Over 700,000 square feet of unused air rights from neighboring properties could be transferred and utilized for the development, and the images today were produced by Siniaevart using the diagrams and models that have already been released, and showcase the 880-foot version of the plans.
Thanks to a YIMBY reader, we have a first look at what’s rising at 250 Water Street, a five-story residential building in the Vinegar Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn. The building will rise on a 70-foot wide lot that’s been empty for over a decade. Global Property Group is responsible for the development.
Global Property Group has filed applications for a five-story, three-unit residential building at 250 Water Street, in Vinegar Hill, located in Brooklyn on the East River. The structure will measure 17,451 square feet, of which 13,905 square feet will be designated for livable residential space. There will be two apartments on the ground floor, followed by a quintuplex spanning a part of the ground floor and the second through fifth floors. Condominiums are surely in the works. Amenities listed in the Schedule A include private residential storage in the cellar. John Coogan’s NoHo-based OCV Architects is the architect of record.
