Two New High Rises Coming to WTC South


February 21, 2007

Real estate development is on the rise in the area south of the World Trade Center, with two new towers recently added to the construction slate.

The first is 50 West Street, located between West and Washington Streets at J.P. Ward Street (just north of the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel Entrance). The project involves abatement and demolition of the location's three existing buildings, which will be replaced by a new 65-story residential tower and hotel. Pending abatement and demolition-plan approval by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other agencies, the developer hopes to begin several months of deconstruction work as soon as spring 2007, followed by 32 months of construction.

Nearby at 111 Washington Street (at Carlisle Street), abatement and demolition of the parking garage and two neighboring buildings (numbers 109 and 107) are planned in the coming months. The project's start also depends on EPA approval, with plans to rebuild the site as a 50-story residential tower and hotel. The developer expects construction to last approximately two years.

Looks kind of sleek. I'm sure we'll grow to love it with a better rendering. There's info in there about 111 Washington, was wondering when they'd take down that garage. I'll post that information there as well.

at 700 feet this will make a very very big impact on the skyline seen from the harbor and liberty island which is one of the most famous views of the city in movies, tv, and print. this will not go hidden. not quite as in the foreground as the curved state street tower but in the ballpark

I wonder if this will end up looking like Jahn's 600 N. Fairbanks tower going up right now in Chicago. It has a similar diagonal cantilever effect and very, very transparent glass.

I can't wait until we bet a better rendering. I'd also like to see it with the backdrop of the other Downtown towers.

With the larger rendering, I notice more detail in the base. Has the potential to be Downtown's nicest residential. Could be better than Gehry's, though we need really good renderings of both.

Good to see downtown NYC being all ambitious and reaching for the sky again. This is where Manhattan started, and not a place for where nimbys rule.

Jahn usually uses very good materials, so I think it will probably look stunning.

Great, great news. That neighboring is up and coming. I collected a good deal of material/photos on it last summer, will have to find the disk where I put it all, and then will probably make a thread with all local project updates, etc for others to post.

Just South of Jahn... will be this beauty!

Just south of this 50 West Street tower will be this 60 story beauty by Frank Williams right above the Battery Park tunnel entrance:

What a wonderful combo!
