Frank Gehry's Signature Theatre Center has been given city funding to relocate to the lower level of this Related Companies development from its original proposed location at the World Trade Center. Construction is now well underway. The tower is now slated for 59 stories.

City to invest in theater construction at Related's 440 West 42nd Street



December 22, 2009


The city has partnered with the Signature Theatre Company and Related Companies to build a Frank Gehry-designed theater at Related's new residential building and hotel at 440 West 42nd Street at 10th Avenue, according to a press release sent out prior to this morning's announcement by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn. The city will contribute $25 million toward construction of the $60 million theater, Bloomberg said. The arts facility will serve as a new home for the Signature Theatre Company, allowing it to more than double the number of audience members that it can accommodate at its current location at 555 West 42nd Street near 11th Avenue.

The new $800 million, 59-story residential complex in which the theater will reside will have 800 housing units, including 160 low-income residences, and will create 700 construction jobs. Construction of the LEED silver-certified residential complex is expected to be complete in 2011, with construction of the theater finished in 2012. Bloomberg emphasized the significance of pushing forward with the project, even during trying financial times, during the press conference. "There was a period when the future of the project was in question -- as were its 700 construction jobs and hundreds of units of much-needed housing," Bloomberg said. "Today it's serving as a prime example that -- despite the national economic downturn -- large-scale projects are still happening."

I think it will be higher too but with a flat top, it may not exceed the stated 617ft by very much.

thanks for the info, here are some pics:

The Related Companies told us that leaked renderings of its 59-story tower at 440 West 42nd Street in Hell's Kitchen weren't accurate, but we're starting to doubt those claims. Cladding is now going up on the Arquitectonica- and SLCE-designed full-block tower (which will have condos and rentals) that matches those renderings. Slabs of sandstoney panels have been attached to the base along 41st and 42nd Streets, echoing the buff-toned brick seen across the street at the infamous Zebra Tower. Above the four-story base, where Frank Gehry is designing spaces for the Signature Theater Company, another seven stories have gone up. There's no glass up yet, so whether the neighborhood will get another tin-can special or something more interesting remains to be seen.

Dang that is really fast. The tower is actually going to be visible cuz the surrounding towers are not that tall.
