YIMBY and Instagram user Sinaevart has created a new set of renderings depicting how Foster + Partner’s original 2006 design for 200 Greenwich Street, aka Two World Trade Center, would look among the current skyline. The renderings come on the heels of the reports that Norman Foster is in the midst of revamping the design after developer Silverstein Properties returned to him to complete the final component of the World Trade Center complex. Work on the project has been stalled since the early 2010s.
Construction has passed the halfway point on 199 Chrystie Street, a 14-story, 39,188-square-foot condominium building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Progress has been swift since YIMBY’s last visit in April 2019, when excavation was still underway. Located near the intersection of Chrystie Street and Stanton Street, the project is designed by R. Wade Johnson Design and is being developed by KD Sagamore Capital, which purchased the plot for $20 million. Two buildings, 199 and 201 Chrystie Street, were demolished to clear the way for the new development.
YIMBY went to check out 3 St. Mark’s Place in the East Village, where an eight-story mixed-use office building is set to rise. Approved by the New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission in the summer of 2019, the nearly 54,000-square-foot project is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Real Estate Equities Corporation. In addition to construction of the new structure at the intersection of St. Mark’s Place and Third Avenue, plans also call for exterior alterations to an adjacent historic landmark at 4 Saint Mark’s Place, known as the Hamilton Holly House.
Work is progressing on the six-story addition atop 60 Charlton Street, formally addressed as 163 Varick Street, in Hudson Square. The steel structure will bring the mixed-use building’s total height to 12 stories and 191 feet tall. Designed by HOK and co-developed by APF Properties, Kenneth Aschendorf and Berndt Perl with Stuart Milstein of Drake Street Properties, the commercial property is located at the intersection of Varick Street and Charlton Street, near the entrance to the Holland Tunnel.
Exterior work is moving along on the final floors of 40 Bleecker Street, a 12-story residential building at the corner of Mulberry Street and Bleecker Street in NoHo. Designed by Rawlings Architects and developed by Broad Street Development, the project will contain a total of 61 one- to five-bedroom units with interiors designed by Ryan Korban.
