NEW YORK | 247 Cherry Street | 1008 FT | 79 FLOORS

It’s really going to be 2 supertalls. One will be 748 feet and the other will be 798 feet. They are classified as one because they are both part of the same new superstructure that is going up.

How many buildings in the Two Bridges? One over 1000 feet, two between 700-800, and one at 700 feet? So 4 buildings?

Technically 4 but essentially 5 with One Manhattan Square

Hopefully we see a lot more! Not only around this bridge but the other one as well! Speaking of both bridges need renovation, maybe the city should make a deal where the devs help pay for the reno and they get extra air rights?

NYguy:
I like that SHoP keeps this in the renderings. You usually don’t get that.

It helps build future interest.

It looks nice. I know it’s just distance warping but it does look (from this direction and location) really nice at that height when compared with downtown and especially 1 WTC. Hopefully we see more height on both sides of the river, for both of the Major bridges right there.

I especially love these proposals. They add needed density in an area of the city that needs it, and present an informal second phase of the improvement of this area, while softening some of the harsh lines of the first phase towers. These will represent the Battery Park City phase of the Two Bridges neighborhood.

First Proposal, one new tower 38 stories in height at the Laguardia Houses.


Second Proposal, with three towers roughly 35-40 stories in height at the Smith Houses.

Some more photos of the new tower at Laguardia Houses, this time focusing on the ground floor.

Are these real projects?

Hmmm I don’t think so, they’re just infills to show what can built in the area (LaGuardia housing in the LES). In fact, it’s stalled. But considering the upcoming projects in the waterfront area, I’m sure these will come to fruition.

#15 on the proposed list.

What’s interesting is that there wasn’t big projects here before. You would assume the bridges area would be a hot spot for development. Oh well.

This project could be interesting. I wonder if more supertalls will pop up nearby?

It will likely be more context and filler in the area, but I could see a couple more standouts in the area as well. Anything to visually connect/tie in this area with the financial district and I am good!

Is there anything major proposed closer to the Manhattan Bridge?
