I'm assuming it's two banks of elevators and not just 2 elevators right?

edit: hmm.. it's just 50 apartments.. so I guess 2 elevators would cut it. Jeez, can't imagine what rent would be like on a 3 story 3K sqft apartment.

I doubt this is likely to get built anyways (seems like some stupid/abstract concept...). One of the websites says instead of having parking for every unit they're going to have communal electric cars? LOL like people paying for 3000sqft apartment are going to use electric vehicles let alone COMMUNAL ones.

I agree that it's ugly as well. Blech. Height isn't always awesome.

I think this proposal is actually at the lot at the corner of Greenwich & Spring.

The old gas station is south of Canal, and this site is definitely north of Canal, assuming the rendering is placed correctly.

It would also make sense from a zoning perspective, because I'm pretty sure you could do this north of Canal, but not south.

Pure fantasy.

If the weird background locations shown isn't enough of a giveaway, there's also no way in hell something that tall will be allowed to be built in those locations without some kind of massive community uprising.

I believe this is a proposed "concept" similar to this one...
http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=181550

But it would be wonderful if it is not.

I agree this proposal is highly questionable, but definitely not because of zoning.

You can build very tall towers north of Canal. There's a 700+ foot office proposal by Trinity Realty right around the corner.

South of Canal is another story. Not allowed under current zoning in most of Tribeca.

Would there be community outcry? Of course, but as-of-right would make it irrelevent. There would be no public review.

Can they please make this building a 1,000 footer. I really want to see this building's presence when I am walking down Canal Street.

Is it as of right? If this requires any sort of public approval process then its already dead. Its twice the height of trump soho and only a couple blocks from it. Do you remember the hell it was to get that building built. Its got to be that site north of Spring and bordering West. If they own that entire tract of land, then it definitely might have the air rights to be built without approvals needed.

Trump already dominates All of Hudson Square. this would be spectacular in boldness

I was just thinking the same thing. Let's hope that it doesn't need any public approval...afterall that tower would be a giant middle finger to all the NIMBYs living in that area

I still don't believe this to be an actual proposal, in the sense that there is someone to build it. These renderings don't help that perception (the tower is in various locations).

i know, neither do i. let's just wait for some news on a possible developer. if nothing turns out, you can move the thread to the "Never Built & Visionary Project" section.

As NY guy pointed out, the fact that the renderings are all in totally different parts of the Island is not a great sign haha

^^ it certainly looks that way. i wonder about the height though, 950ft roof or to the parapet? i guess that's not important right now, let's just wait for some info who will actually build this tower. also, there is still no info on the exact location.

The gas station is on the south corner of Canal. Also, while the renderings seem to have some discrepancies, this is clearly on West Street (not Greenwich), as evidenced by the medians on West Street.
