It's like a stretched Times Square Tower.

And what we see is, that a lot of the proposals in the last years actually did move forward, so this might be an amazing race upwards, where everyone is the winner.
In some cases it's better if all the proposals don't get built, especially when it comes to office space. You can always find a residential buyer or tenant but businesses evolve, merge with others and maximize efficiencies to the point where a $1 billion organization can be run out of a 30,000 sq. ft. building. Excess office space has nowhere to go and too much of it can kill off new development for decades.

Don't forget that Manhattan's office stock is pretty old, so new, class A, office space needs to be built. Just look at Downtown, where Woolworth, 1 Wall St, 70 Pine and Co. are being transformed to residential.

I love the design, honestly. Very interesting layering concept of each section.

Exactly. There comes the time when old office buildings, no matter how well designed, just can't compete with a hundred years of inovation anymore. These buildings start to sink to class B and that creates a class A vacuum which only new towers can fix

City Announces Deal for Elementary School on Former Syms Site
http://www.tribecatrib.com/content/c...rmer-syms-site

Quote:
Four years after Downtown school advocates first pitched the idea of creating a school in the newly vacated Syms Clothing store site at 42 Trinity Pl., officials announced on Thursday that it will finally happen.

The new elementary school is expected to go at the bottom of a super-tall building that will rise where the Syms Clothing Store stood. This image, by FXFOWLE Architects, is an example of a possible tower on the site, but no final plans for the tower have been released.
The city’s School Construction Authority (SCA) said in a statement that it had reached the deal with the property’s owner, Trinity Place Holdings, which is expected to construct a super-tall residential tower on the site. A design for the “approximately” 476-seat elementary school in the base of the tower is anticipated to be ready by the beginning of this summer, according to the statement. No mention was made of when the school would open or begin construction.

Major downgrade alert!

Trinity Place complex gets a new look — and a new name
http://nypost.com/2016/01/27/trinity...nd-a-new-name/



Quote:
Plans have been crystallized for the redevelopment of the former Syms complex at 28-42 Trinity Place, which will now be known as 77 Greenwich St.

The upcoming 500-foot-tall glass condominium tower will also have a new grammar school at its base, as well as 7,000 square feet of retail.

Despite other renderings and rumors that proclaimed the project as a super-tall structure of 1,000 feet, it will be just half that height and much less expensive to build, but still have river and harbor views.

“There were a lot of fun rumors,” says Trinity Place Holdings President and CEO Matthew Messinger.

The former Forest City exec is leading the Trinity team that will now move toward shovels in the ground for the 285,000-square-foot development.

....FXFOWLE architects has designed what will be an LEED-rated building while minimalist Deborah Berke Partners is taking the lead on apartment and amenity spaces that are “warm and comfortable.”

....
Messinger declined to discuss pricing, but given the ongoing demand, local super-tall competition and the project’s completion date likely in 2019, it will probably start well over $2,000 to $3,000 per square foot. The Marketing Directors will handle sales.

Seems more like 'major rumor debunk' alert. The design actually is very nice. Its a shame it won't stand out as much as 50 West Street.

I hate it when developers lose their bottle.

Landmarks Requires Rethink Of Cantilevered Mixed-Use Tower At 77 Greenwich Street
Full article on New York Yimby: http://newyorkyimby.com/2016/02/land...ch-street.html

The proposed 500-foot-tall mixed-use building at 77 Greenwich Street (a.k.a. 42 Trinity Place) suffered a setback on Tuesday. The Landmarks Preservation Commission did not vote to approve its proposed cantilevered portions.

A 500 foot concrete wall. What a heap of garbage.

Less Overhang Paves Way For Landmarks Approval Of Mixed-Use Tower At 77 Greenwich Street
http://newyorkyimby.com/2016/03/less...ch-street.html


new design

Quote:
A 35-story mixed-use project in the Financial District can now go forward, thanks to approval from the Landmarks Preservation on Tuesday. The project is at 77 Greenwich Street (a.k.a. 42 Trinity Place) and needed LPC approval because it would cantilever over the Robert and Anne Dickey House, an individual landmark immediately to the south at 67 Greenwich Street (a.k.a. 28-30 Trinity Place). The changes to the design weren’t too dramatic and one of them was described as a “no-brainer” by the LPC chair.

oh well cant be too greedy I guess. Went from possible supertall to 500 foot (in Downtown Manhattan which is kinda no big deal) with a mediocre design. Oh well move along. I hope it fail so other devs will think twice before going the safe route.

All Engines Go for 40-Story Condo with New Elementary School; See How it Will Change the Downtown Skyline
December 01, 2016

Quote:
A highly anticipated condominium tower at the foot of lower Manhattan is gearing up for construction. Addressed as 77 Greenwich Street, the building will join a bevy of new condo projects such as One Wall Street, 45 Broad Street and 50 West Street, which have high-tailed off of the area’s resurgence. The project’s development team, led by Trinity Place Holdings (TPH), will erect a 40-story, 503-foot tall skyscraper with 90 one- to four-bedroom homes, and a 476-seat elementary school at its base. Earlier this week, it was announced that Marketing Directors will oversee the marketing and sales of the residential units, which will all offer incredible water and city views.

That giant concrete/stone (most likely the much cheaper concrete option) slab will look absolutely atrocious after a few years of weathering. There should be laws in place against such affronts to the aesthetics of the city.

Yeah that's a tricky part of the design, nothing wrong with the west side.
The east side won't be visible from afar though.
