Not that I’m aware of.
FX Fowle does good work and I have no doubt this will be an attractive tower, but I really hope we start seeing some more diverse materials being used in Lower Manhattan. More stone, terra-cotta, exposed concrete or metal framing would really help keep all the new glass towers in balance.
That blank wall will be obscured in no time though.
Continuing the discussion from NEW YORK | World Trade Center District:

We also hear that Harmon, Spies and and Kevin Donner of Eastdil Secured were just hired to market the development site that includes the former Syms store at 42 Trinity Place in Lower Manhattan. Sitting west of Trinity Church, it also includes 67 Greenwich St. and 81 Greenwich St.
The trio was hired by former Forest City executive, Matthew Messinger, now CEO of Trinity Place Holding, which took over the assets of the failed discount retailer.
Architects FxFowle have already prepared a rendering to help market the site that can be developed as-of-right with a mixed-use building of roughly 300,000 square feet. Nearby, Time Equities is averaging $2,400 per square foot for its condominiums on West Street and the future buyer of this site could include condos and hotel or even office space along with street retail.
The site on Feb 29th. Hopefully, by the next Feb 29th, the new Tower will have risen.
Interestingly, the developers did not obtain the adjacent brick building or the adjacent lot. Those sites clearly will be developed at some point
From the Trinity side:
From the Greenwich side:
I’m surprised too. The PR for the developer tells me only the white building is coming down though. I think the entire block should be razed (including that ugly landmarked building on the southern end). Somebody could build a striking tower with quite a unique footprint.
This tower will complement this western skyline downtown.
The heinous garages must go, and the BB Tunnel entrance should be decked over to create green space.
Is this 77 greenwich street? NEW YORK | 77 Greenwich Street | 503 FT | 40 FLOORS. They seem to have similar designs and very close locations. It sure does look like the same project. If so could we merge em?
If not, its crazy 2 large projects are so close to eachother. @chris08876 can we merge them if they are the same?
These are the same projects
Nice update, Brooklyn.
