The last time YIMBY checked in on the new 58-story and 800-foot tall tower coming to 111 Murray Street, the building was just creeping above ground level. Now, a little over two months later, the structure is already climbing past its 15th floor, with the latest update thanks to YIMBY Forumer Kevin LeClerc.
As befitting one of the planet’s key engines of economic and cultural motion, New York City exists in a state of constant change. This is particularly true for the city’s older, centrally located neighborhoods, such as TriBeCa. Over the past two centuries, its western portion along West Street has been repeatedly transformed beyond recognition, particularly by the 1960s urban renewal program that completely cleared dozens of formerly-vibrant blocks. But even there, a 32-year building life span is short by any measure.
Last month, YIMBY posted the first renderings for the tower coming to 36 Central Park South, on the site of the old Helmsley Hotel. The first version was created by Handel Architects, and the second — which we only had a glimpse of — was designed by Herzog & de Meuron, and we now have additional images of that version.
New renderings have surfaced of the planned 58-story, 157-unit luxury tower at 111 Murray Street, in southern Tribeca, which is being developed by Witkoff, Fisher Brothers and New Valley. The building is planned to have nearly 2,100 square feet of retail, and a 10,000 square-foot landscaped plaza, according to The New York Times.
Last summer, YIMBY brought you renderings of 215 Chrystie Street, a 28-story, 370-hotel-room mixed-use tower now under construction on the Lower East Side. According to Bowery Boogie, concrete and rebar are up to the second floor. Ian Schrager and Witkoff are developing, and Herzog & de Meuron is the design architect. Completion is scheduled for late 2016.
