I walked by today, and the building is covered in netting.

I hope they discover oil under the plot so this thing never gets built... Or a box of good taste. Something...

This tower will be amazing. Every other city would be creaming their pants for a 950' KPF tower.

I agree with Lex... I really like the top widening instead of narrowing like most other residential towers. I think overall there's too much overkill these days ordinarily with glass dominant towers but this one looks like it's going to be incredible!

I also agree. Downtown is having a renaissance of towers with eccentric designs. I think 80 South Street will be the next interesting design. I can't see anything traditional rising at that site. Back to the topic at hand, 1 WTC, another product of lower Manhattan's resurgence, will be an excellent backdrop for this tower. I don't think the renderings do this tower justice.
It could end up being downtown's One57

If SHoP will be tabbed to do 80 South Street, I agree we would be in for a treat.

After 2 WTC, this will the next great one for lower Manhattan. I hope so.

I'd prefer Robert AM Stern at 80 South St., SHoP at 101 Murray, and KPF in Guangzhou!

It is far better than what was on the site, and with good glass, it could be spectacular!

They are moving really slowly though!

I'm really curious why some people dislike this so strongly? At least I can understand why something like 432 Park is so polarizing, but there's nothing THAT bad or strange about this. It's glassy and the shape isn't anything too crazy. Personally I think it will be a great addition to the city.

The renderings shown are not the greatest but I know w/o a doubt that when it's all said and done, this tower will look quite stunning. It will be a great addition to lower manhattan skyline.

According to this article, apparently this tower has a new address name of 111 Murray Street and a 200’ deduction to 740 ft.


As demolition begins, no renderings for Murray St. building to be, but a new address
http://www.downtownexpress.com/2015/...a-new-address/


Quote:
BY DUSICA SUE MALESEVIC | Thirty Park Place, at 926 feet, and 56 Leonard, at 821 feet, still win.

At one time, the building that will sprout up at the former St. John’s University site was in the running for the tallest tower in Tribeca at a reportedly 850-950 feet, but in reality it will hit 740 feet, according to the developer.

The residential building, which will also have some retail space, has a new address: 111 Murray St., not 101, said Alex Adams, project executive for the Fisher Brothers, one of the developers along with the Witkoff Group.

At Community Board 1’s Tribeca Committee meeting on Feb. 11, Adams stressed that it was a preliminary presentation and plans have yet to finalize. There are still no final renderings of the building, he said.

Adams was asked about renderings a few times at the meeting. A rendering that was reported in some outlets early last year turned out to be false.

“As soon as the plans are ready, you’ll come and present them,” said Noah Pfefferblit, district manager. “So we get them direct from you and not in a blog.”

Adams said that he would. He explained that while there is “a very lengthy cast of folks designing it” — including architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox and architect and designer David Rockwell doing a lot of interior work — the plan is close to completion but not final. They are still deciding on things such as the outer shape of the building.

Plaza Construction is the construction manager and Anthony DelGreco, project executive, talked about the building’s timeline.

He said right now they’re demolishing the existing building — a ten-story, 160,000 sq. ft. structure. The developers bought the building from St. John’s for $233 million in 2013.
Demolition began a few weeks ago and should be finished this spring, sometime in April. Once completed, the work on the tower’s foundation will begin right away and take about another year to finish, he said.

Then the superstructure will be built, which will also take a year, explained DelGreco, with the tower expected to be finished in the summer of 2018.

Quote:
The site will actually have two buildings, the 62-story tower and a much smaller four-story building that will have some retail as well as mechanical equipment. There will also be retail at the base of the tower for a total of 2,500 sq. ft.
DelGreco discussed the hours of construction, which will be Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 6 a.m. Due to the use of cranes, there will be work sometimes on the weekend….(Con’t reading in link)
