19 Park Place
After a stop-work order paused construction last fall, construction has resumed at 19 Park Place, which is now edging above neighboring structures. The site’s developer is ABN Realty, and the architect is Ismael Leyva.
19 Park Place
19 Park Place will eventually stand 21 stories to its roof, and the tower will be entirely residential. While the project would have had the opportunity for minor local prominence, that chance has come and gone; since construction resumed, Silverstein’s 30 Park Place — located directly across the street — has also begun its ascent, and already stands taller than 19 Park Place’s eventual pinnacle.
19 Park Place and 30 Park Place
Recently approved permits indicate slight changes to the development’s composition, and it will also be slightly taller than previously reported. 19 Park Place will now rise 252 feet rather than 232, and the number of units has shrunk from 29 to 24. Both modifications would indicate the site is shifting towards an even higher-end product, with generous ceiling heights and an exclusive feel to the building positioning it at the head of the ‘luxury boutique’ market.
Blurry On-Site Rendering
On-site signage gives September of this year as the planned completion date, though that would seem slightly optimistic given the current state of construction; a 2015 target is likely more realistic.
