At the time of YIMBY’s last update on the 702-foot-tall and 50-story 25 Park Row, the tower was climbing to the final floor of its crown. Now, the 29th-tallest skyscraper currently under construction in the Five Boroughs has topped-out over City Hall Park and the Financial District, making a noticeable impact on the Lower Manhattan skyline when looking east from Broadway and City Hall Park. The building will include 110 condominiums and is being designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by L&M Development Partners, as well as the J&R Music Store founders. It took less than a year for this tower to rise to its pinnacle, while the glass and facade panels are continuing to rise into the sky.
