Over the summer, YIMBY revealed renderings for Related Companies’ planned 13-story, 47-unit residential building at 70 Vestry Street (aka 264 West Street), in Tribeca, and now the developer has landed $200 million in construction loans, provided by Bank of America. The building will measure 154,019 square feet in total, and includes roughly 800 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Robert A.M. Stern is designing, while Ismael Leyva is serving as the architect of record. Demolition permits have already been approved to raze the site’s existing tenement and low-rise buildings.
Do what the Landmarks Preservation Commission asks and you shall receive its blessing. So was the case for the hotel planned for 456 Greenwich Street, sitting partly in the TriBeCa North Historic District. The proposal went before the commission in early August, but the brick choice and square fenestrations didn’t fly. So, the applicant was forced to come back. They did so on Tuesday and had perhaps the most pain-free experience in this journalist’s experience with the LPC.
Back in July, YIMBY posted that 56 Leonard was topping-out, and now the tower’s scaffolding seems to be disappearing from its uppermost floors, revealing the cantilevered levels at the very top. The remainder of the tower’s glass will first be installed across the penthouse levels, spiraling downwards to meet the glass that’s already appeared along the mid-section.
Back in February, Tribeca Citizen posted the first images for DDG’s new condo project coming to 12 Warren Street, in Tribeca. Since then, construction has made major headway, a teaser site has gone live, and now a tipster has sent along a new exterior of the building, as well as the first interior.
In June 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of the office-to-residential conversion of the 10-story building at 11 Beach Street, in Tribeca, and now construction is well underway, per Curbed. An atrium has been carved out of the building’s center, and the converted structure will contain 27 three- to five-bedroom condominiums, averaging an impressive 3,975 square feet apiece. HFZ Capital is developing, while BKSK Architects is designing; interiors are being designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen. Completion is expected in 2016.
