City Planning approves controversial trio of resi towers in Two Bridges

In a 10-to-3 vote, the City Planning Commission voted in favor of a controversial application, filed jointly by four developers, to build three residential towers in Two Bridges that together will add 3,000 housing units to the neighborhood. They include JDS Development’s 1,000-unit rental tower at 247 Cherry Street; L+M Development and CIM Group’s 798-foot tower at 260 South Street; and Starrett Corporation’s 730-foot building at 259 Clinton Street.

Combined, the projects represent $4.5 billion worth of investment in the neighborhood, and would add nearly 700 affordable units.

[...]

The projects are being developed as-of-right, meaning they didn’t require special approvals to go forward. But after a failed attempt to force them through the city’s labyrinthine land-use review process, the trio went through an environmental study to determine what could be done to mitigate negative effects on the community.

View attachment 2364027

those are separate projects. The blue one is already built and the green one is an approved supertall.

Yes, and in that render, right on the left of that approved supertall (247 Cherry Street) you see two parallel midrises, and those are the same two that are in the visualisations in post #1, that's where you can picture these two towers.

I hope that gives everyone a good idea of the future skyline there. There was a visualisation of all four towers together somewhere at some point, I don't know if anyone still knows where it is.

It's kinda annoying when companies put details on mass placeholders making people think they're the architectural designs. Just stick to monochrome drawings until there's a real design.
