What exactly is so special about this tower?

Nice and slim, but both sides are just blank walls aren't they?
It may not look pretty when it's seen from the side.

Unfortunately there is not very much they can do about it.

The plot is extremely narrow, so setbacks are not really possible.
If they were to have windows along the sides, then any new building that may be constructed on either side would butt directly against the windows.

For instance:

I belive, only the first floors are blank walls on both sides.

The rest of the building, one side is blank (next to the taller building) and windows on the other side.

Or At least it would make sense like that...

Park Place's Most Shocking Building Actually Getting Built



1:30 PM, Feb. 3 2012

The rendering for a new 21-story condo building at 19 Park Place was mind-blowing enough when the Ismael Leyva design came to our attention in late 2010. Here's what's even more mind-blowing: it's actually getting built. Tribeca Citizen recently noticed a construction update sign at the skinny lot and uncovered the intel that construction on the building will begin in the next few weeks. The sign gives the construction an end-date of November 2013. The Leyva design—which the developer confirms is still the one being used—has thoroughly normal interiors, at least according to the old renderings. But it's not the interiors the neighborhood's likely to worry about.

The Work is All Behind the Scenes at Park Place's Big Shocker

1:15 PM, Sep. 13 2012

Construction signage went up back in February at 19 Park Place, the skinny lot set to get a wacky condo designed by Ismael Leyva. Work was set to start within a few weeks, but so far, the most significant progress has been behind the scenes: there have been a few DOB filings approved for work on the building. Curbed intern Emily Laskodi wandered over to the site to see how construction's been progressing.

Here's what the site looks like right now:



The signage still lists the construction end-date as November 2013.
At last word, foundation work was slowly being done...

19 Park Place Condo Gets Spiffier Name: "Tribeca Royale"


http://www.ilarch.com/project.php?id=5

The condominium development at 19 Park Place has its official moniker: Tribeca Royale, Curbed reported. The project, which is designed by architect Ismael Levya, is on track for 2014 completion.

Work at the site has been going on for the past year, as previously reported. ABN Realty is developing the building, which will be 25 feet wide and 21 stories high. The building will contain 24 units — 11 of them full-floor homes on the higher levels. The units located toward the back of the building will have their own terrace spaces, and others will come as duplexes.
