A proposal for a two-story addition atop 131-135 Duane Street is under review by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The site is located between Church Street and West Broadway in Tribeca, with the design being carried out by Jonathan Schloss Architect, a local Tribeca firm.
Since YIMBY last checked on Tribeca‘s 111 Murray Street, the exterior mechanical elevator has started to come down, while the ground level retail base and exterior finishes are also wrapping up. The building is officially complete, and ready for immediate occupancy.
Located in Lower Manhattan and bounded by Broadway, Leonard Street, Catherine Lane, and Lafayette Street, the conversion and restoration process at 108 Leonard Street, aka 346 Broadway, is an ongoing and intricate effort. Built on a thin, rectangular block with an Italian Renaissance revival architectural style, it was completed in 1894 by McKim Mead & White, the “starchitects” of the early 20th century in New York.
Sitting directly across the street to the east of 108 Chambers Street, another new residential project is changing the landscape of Tribeca. Located between Warren Street and Chambers, the 12-story 30 Warren Street has already-topped out, and is currently blanketed in a web of scaffolding and black construction netting. The building is being designed by Post-Office Architects (POA), while HTO Architects serves as the executive architect. Cape Advisors is developing, the same group behind 75 West Broadway just down the block to the west.
Nearly four years after permits were filed, 111 Murray is almost entirely finished. The 792-foot tall structure will add 157 condominiums to the Lower Manhattan and Tribeca market. After applications were approved in May of 2015, construction was quick to start. Now, the development by Fisher Brothers, Witkoff, and New Valley is nearing completion. All that remains to be installed of the facade are two glass panels on the southwestern edge.
