It has been several months since YIMBY last checked on 45 Park Place, a soon-to-be 45-story, 667-foot residential tower rising in the blocks just below Tribeca. Now, the building is nearing the halfway mark. It is already surpassing adjacent structures that have hidden ongoing progress since the project began to vertically take off this year. The site is being developed by Sharif el-Gamal’s Soho Properties, and will have a substantial presence on the changing skyline by the end of the decade.
YIMBY has an exclusive new rendering for 100 Franklin in Tribeca, the latest venuture by developer DDG. Known as the JR Building and located between West Broadway and Sixth Avenue, the project is named after the street art installations by French graffiti artist JR that once stood on-site. Comprised of two triangular structures, the project will yield 10 spacious condominiums, with retail also situated on the ground floor.
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.
