Excavation has gone down about as far as it will go. Two piling machines are working on site.

Damn, I totally forgot about this project. Looks like it's U/C, but we need some confirmation.
Btw thread title should be changed to 118 Fulton Street.

From the developer: http://www.lightstonegroup.com/cases...fulton-street/

The Lightstone Group


Over an 18 month acquisition process, Lightstone assembled 5 fee parcels, 8 air-right parcels, and completed 32 tenant buyouts. The result was the creation of a unique, 406,853 square foot luxury residential development with an unparalleled amenity package designed to stand 63 stories and 700 ft. tall.

112-118 Fulton Street, a trophy asset in the heart of Lower Manhattan, constitutes a perfect example of an extremely difficult assemblage of both land parcels and air rights providing an extremely low and unprecedented land basis for a Manhattan development. The value created from this complicated assemblage provided Lightstone with an opportunity to create a rare Manhattan rental opportunity.

Definitely looks like some Miami garbage designed by Carlos Ott.
I feel particularly sad it gets built in that prestigious location....
When some Zaha Hadid monstruosity in front of the city hall?...

Not a huge fan of the design, but it will be some nice height and density.

New rendering of 118 Fulton Street:

Quote from New York YIMBY
Late last year, YIMBY posted a video featuring renderings of plans for a new 63-story residential tower at 118 Fulton Street. The design featured in the film was originally created for the Lightstone Group, which sold off 112-118 Fulton Street to Carmel Partners last September for $171 million. But while the site’s developer has changed, its appearance has seemingly stayed the same, and a new on-site rendering (as well as a tipster’s submission) confirms that a design similar to the one previously posted will be built.


The site originally comprised the lots spanning 112-120 Fulton Street, but an issue with 421-a resulted in its downsizing. Nevertheless, the new tower will still be rather substantial, and new building applications indicate it will stand 49 stories tall, with the rooftop bulkheads topping-out 574 feet above street level.

In terms of scope, the building will be divided between a 49,941-square-foot commercial component, and 470,896 square feet of residential space. The latter will be split between 483 apartments, and with the average unit clocking in at under 1,000 square feet, rental apartments would appear to be more likely than condominiums.

The actual design is rather bland, but with so many new towers going up in the vicinity, the building should act as simple filler. Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel is the design architect, and SLCE is the architect of record.

The old video showed a 65-story building, which has been scaled down somewhat, though the facade will be nearly the same. While the impact of the glassy box on the skyline will be minimal, its effects on the streetscape down below will be both beneficial and significant, injecting another component that will help complete Fulton Street’s transition into a mixed-use corridor.

One block west, ODA is designing a 40-story tower for Lexin Capital that will also stand approximately the same height at 75 Nassau Street. And across the street, Lightstone Group bought 130 William almost immediately after selling 118 Fulton, and new building applications have already been filed for yet another 50-story tower.

Lightstone’s page on the project describes the follow-up to Carmel’s acquisiton thusly:

"Though Lightstone is a long-term holder, it was approached unsolicited by a large investor with an offer to buy the property at a substantial profit. The assemblage, coupled with the shovel ready site, and advanced building design and construction plans provided the investor with a major advantage in terms of the speed in which they could execute the development and construction schedule."

Evidently this is why plans appear almost the same as before. Per signage, completion is expected by the end of 2018, and foundation work is already well underway.

Looks from the new render like they've mercifully removed the weird striped cladding... although Yimby's comment that the facade will be "nearly the same" is confusing.

As long as they do lose the stripes, this will be a perfectly decent filler. I even kind of like the mechanical/amenity cube.

It might turn out even more boring than expected.


Just east of 75 Nassau, construction workers are busy excavating the site of Carmel Partners’ 49-story rental tower at 118 Fulton Street. Recently, a new rendering has appeared along the construction fence showing a slightly modified and even more unattractive design.

New Look For 49-Story 118 Fulton Street, Financial District
For years, YIMBY has been reporting on plans for a high-rise residential tower at 118 Fulton Street, between Nassau and Dutch streets in the Financial District. No building exists yet, but the design has apparently changed again, per on-site renderings posted to the YIMBY Forums.

This saga goes back to February 2014. At that time, demolition was imminent for a 59-story project developed by the Lightstone Group.

Go forward to June of 2014, and Lightstone had sold the site, which spans 112-118 Fulton Street, to Carmel Partners for $170 million. In July of 2014, permits were filed for foundation work. By October of 2014, Carmel had completed its acquisition and planned a 63-story tower.

In November of 2014, the public got a look at renderings for what is believed to have been Lightstone’s concept for the site. Almost a year later, an on-site rendering showed a look not entirely dissimilar to that concept, though with a floor count reduced to 49. But now we have another revised look, with the project appearing much more subdued. The Department of Buildings lists SLCE Architects as the architect of record.

As for the plans for the building, the latest permit still lists a 49-story building, rising to 569 feet in height and encompassing 520,928 square feet. With 483 units spread across 470,986 square feet of residential space, the average unit would span a bit over 975 square feet.

According to the Schedule A, residential units will start with five units per floor from the fifth floor to the seventh floor, then nine units each on floors eight through 31, seven units on the 32nd floor, and nine units each on floors 33 through 49.

Listed amenities include laundry in the cellar; room for 202 bikes on the second floor; a game room, party room, lounge, and reading room on the third floor; a gym, residential terrace, and accessory children’s playroom on the fourth floor; and an “accessory residential amenity and roof terrace” on the roof.

The building is listed as having 49,941 square feet of commercial space, which would be for units in the cellar and on the first and second floors.
Currently, there is what appears to be foundation work at the site, as seen in another shot by Walpole, but there isn’t a point in trying to estimate a completion date.
