I finally got to pass this one today. They're still doing prep work in the street. There were several workers on site, so thats good. The actual foundation is still sitting fallow however. Can't wait for things to get ramped up and for this one to start rising!!

Site prep continues. All photos and commentary courtesy of construction insider IrishInNYC from WNY on 1/8/13:

"Piles for tower crane pad.


Steam cleaning grease and four years of dirt off the rebar.


Saw cutting old foundation wall to prep for new floor.


Clean up."

Big condo tower gets $350M funding

"Financial package assembled by Bank of America, M&T Bank and others is one of the biggest since the market for condominiums began to revive last year.


Bank of America and a group of other lenders, including M&T Bank, have closed on a $350 million package of financing for a planned 60-story residential condominium at 56 Leonard St. in TriBeCa, sources familiar with the deal say.

It is one of the largest construction loans to be awarded since the condo industry began to stir to life last year after several years of dormancy following the Great Recession.

Bank of America has been an active lender to a growing pipeline of office, retail and residential development projects.

The North Carolina-based bank is in talks to provide part of a $200 million loan to the Related Companies to build a second phase to its Gateway retail center in Brooklyn's East New York section. The new wing of that project will be anchored by a Shop Rite grocery store.

At 56 Leonard Street the Texas-based development firm Hines is overseeing the project, which was designed by the Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron, which famously designed the so-called birds nest stadium for the Beijing Olympics, as well as the condo at 40 Bond St. in lower Manhattan, with its distinctive green-glass facade.

Executives involved in the deal could not be reached for comment. "
