Lol this quote from the comment section

“There are 26 buildings in Manhattan exceeding 900 feet in height. At least seven of them are in the CB1 district. Does lower Manhattan really need another mammoth skyscraper?”

No, Manhattan should have 1000 buildings of this size :star_struck:

Tribeca is in need of more towers. The tallest one is the Jenga. Let this tower set the precedent for bigger zoning in the area.

Wow!

2 million square feet is huge! World Trade Center-ish!

Very cool!

It’s in between the three of the ugliest buildings in Manhattan though. If Marte had any brains, he’d strike a deal to get those three torn down and replaced by something nice.

Demolishing a big ugly brick building for something modern, I would absolutely love to see this happen. That’s also what desperately needs to happen to Academy House and 1500 Locust in Philly

Under-the-radar 900 footer proposed, just another day in NYC.

Probably the number one place in all of New York I want to see some new supertalls is on Church Street but I know that will never happen because of zoning.

Zoning can be changed.

All they want is fresh air!

At Thursday’s meeting, which drew more than 100 people (including Stuart Gold, left, who has lived at Independence Plaza since 1986), Mr. Marte raised a second possible approach to opposing the Independence Plaza proposal. “A few years ago, we voted on a new ‘green amendment’ to the State Constitution, which guarantees us access to light and fresh air,” he said. “We used that legal strategy to sue developers.” This was a reference to the 2021 “Environmental Rights” measure, approved overwhelmingly by New York voters, which says, “each person shall have a right to clean air and water, and a healthful environment.”

Morris Adjmi is the architect. Need to see clearer renders obviously but it looks ok so far. I like that it’s not reflective glass. Adjmi usually does quality work with masonry or terra cotta facades.
