Fordham's New Lincoln Square Tower Gets Render, Foundation



A new tower that's part of Fordham University's massive Lincoln Square campus expansion sees its first full reveal following significant headway on the construction site. NY YIMBY spotted the to-be glass tower at 175 West 60th Street, whose construction is imminent given its now-complete foundation. The residential tower is being developed by the ever-prolific Glenwood Management and is designed by The Stephen B. Jacobs Group. It will stand 48-stories and 533-feet-tall, and have 256 units, or six-units per floor.

175 W. 60th St. Well Underway




The last we checked in on 175 West 60th Street, at the end of March, the foundation had just been poured, but the tower had yet to go vertical. In the five months since then, the tower has reached its seventh story, and construction is now progressing more rapidly.

The building on the corner of 60th Street and 10th Avenue is a residential project by Glenwood Management. Despite being rentals, the apartments will be quite luxurious – the building has 289,244 square feet of net residential floorspace divided over just 256 units, yielding an average unit size of over 1,100 square feet.

It may not be a worldbeater but it's a stately, handsome tower that will look good in its locale. I certainly don't think it drags down the Lincoln Center area, but it doesn't scream flashy or daring. For where it is, that's a good thing. It looks fine to me going by the render, we'll just have to see when it's done.
