On adjacent triangular parcels at 100 Franklin Street — between West Broadway and Sixth Avenue, in Tribeca — DDG plans to develop two mixed-use buildings of six and eight stories tall, totaling 10 condominiums, with retail space on the ground floor. According to Crain’s Business, the Board of Standards and Appeals has granted DDG a variance to ignore a required upper-level set-back. The project is being designed in-house, and ground breaking is expected by the Fall, with completion is 2017. The LPC approved the project in January 2014.
Greystone is planning to develop a 10-story building at 108 Chambers Street, in Tribeca, according to Tribeca Citizen. The property was acquired in April for $17 million, and is currently home to a single-story retail building.

Site preparation is expected to begin in the next few weeks, but demolition and new building applications have yet to be filed.

When we last checked in at Silverstein’s 30 Park Place, the 67-story hotel and condo tower had just topped out, becoming the tallest residential building in Lower Manhattan. Now most of the structure has its windows, except for the top 15 stories or so. Cladding has reached even further, and only the five uppermost floors are still naked steel and concrete.
