25 Park Row‘s curtain wall is continuing to rise and wrap around the balconies and upper floors of the 702-foot-tall Financial District skyscraper, the 27th tallest structure in our annual YIMBY countdown. The 50-story mixed-use project is designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by L+M Development Partners, along with the family behind J&R Music World. Sales for the 110 residences are ongoing and are being handled by Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group.
In October, the city’s Public Design Commission voted to erect a large monument within Central Park honoring Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton as pioneers in support of women’s rights. The project team now returns to the Landmark Preservation Commission to request the removal of seven benches immediately in front of the monument and newly revealed text honoring the three historic figures.
Work on the lower levels of 799 Broadway has now reached street level.

The 254,000-square-foot project will include a mix of affordable and market-rate office space for tech companies, retail, and dining facilities managed by Urbanspace. Private entities RAL Development and Suffolk Construction are also part of the project team.
A crowning “Welcome” at 30 Columbia Heights, better known as Panorama, is now in full view above the Brooklyn Heights waterfront. The new sign replaces the iconic Watchtower sign that stood as a signifier of the now-removed Jehovah’s Witness headquarters that formerly occupied the building.
