Back in August, YIMBY reported on the first renderings for a new tower coming to 267 Broadway, in Tribeca. Plans call for the Gene Kaufman-designed building to stand a total height of 510 feet, and after substantial design revisions, we have another update revealing substantial changes since 2017.
Images are out now for the redesigned penthouse in 100 Barclay Street, an Art Deco skyscraper adjacent to One World Trade Center on the southern edge of Tribeca. The 32-story building, originally known as the Barclay-Vesey Building, opened in 1927, designed by architect Ralph Walker. During the September 11th attack, the building suffered heavy damage on its southern and eastern facades. Tishman Realty & Construction led its repairs, with William F. Collins responsible for the restoration. The project was finished in three years at a cost of $1.4 billion, whereby all ornamental details and carving motifs were fixed. Since then, the upper floors have been converted to condominiums.
An updated design has been submitted to the Landmarks Preservation Commission for 312-322 Canal Street, in the West Tribeca Historic District. The site is currently occupied by a two-story retail space, owned by the developer, Trans World Equities. An initial design proposal was submitted in 2011 by Paul A. Castrucci Architect, but was denied by the LPC after being deemed too bland for the area.
It’s been more than two years since we’ve heard any news about 456 Greenwich Street, a large eight-story hotel development that’s been inactive since the extant structures were demolished. The silence was broken Friday, December 22nd, when Caspi Development, Mactaggart Family & Partners, and Barone Management celebrated the official groundbreaking in Tribeca.
The pace of progress at 111 Murray Street has been quite rapid since it started to rise into the Tribeca and Lower Manhattan skylines just over a year ago. Now, the construction crane is finally coming down, and the reflective exterior glass façade is beginning to accentuate the sweeping curves of the building’s distinct crown, which covers the mechanical roof and parapet.
