Smile NEW YORK | 50 Trinity Place | FT | 35 FLOORS

I couldn't find a thread for this site...

New York YIMBY:

Revealed: 50 Trinity Place

Quote:
A new hotel is about to begin rising at 50 Trinity Place, and it will stand approximately 35 floors. The project’s developer had been Sam Chang — who had commissioned a Gene Kaufman design — but the site was sold in 2012. A series of permits were filed in 2013, and it seems the site may be creeping back to life, with workers spotted this week.

50 Trinity Place will be on the larger side for new budget hotels in the Financial District, though its size won’t translate into any appreciable charm; the building’s appearance will be rather Spartan, lacking any apparent detailing. While budget hotels are typified by mundane architecture, the antecedent structure was small, but clad in terracotta — its replacement could at least give a slight nod to the area’s history.

Trinity Place is seeing some major changes this decade; besides 50 Trinity, redevelopment will soon begin at 68-74 Trinity Place, which will be demolished to make way for a new mixed-use project. Though the loss of the original structure will be a shame given its ornate, pre-war detailing, at least that building’s Pelli Clarke Pelli-designed replacement will be appealing.

Despite the lack of permits, demolition of the old structure at 50 Trinity Place is complete, and excavation appears to be imminent.

FIT Investment Files for 29-Story, 188-Room Hotel at 50 Trinity Place:

Peter Poon's architecture is a cancer on New York City. At least he is keeping the street wall with this monstrocity. That's an upgrade over Gene Kaufman, the other esteeemed hotel architect of choice for these budget hotels.

Just a few feet away they are trying to find a buyer for 42 Trinity Place

Here's a blast from the past: the former Syms store at 42 Trinity Place—once described as "comically depressing"—is being shopped around as a development site that could potentially birth the FXFOWLE-designed tower rendered above. But no matter what rises, it will be better than the fugly bunker that currently exists. It's been awhile since this beleaguered site, which includes 67-81 Greenwich Street, was in the news, so let's refresh.

Rumors of a development at the site first arose in 2008, when the clothing retailer had purchased air rights from a neighbor and was reportedly looking to build a tower. But Syms was kind of shady about the whole thing, and the company's investors accused Syms of trying to scam them by privatizing before cashing in on its real estate. Nevertheless, the company continued to buy up the surround properties, but things halted when the market tanked.

In 2011, Syms filed for bankruptcy, then 10 months later, the company emerged as Trinity Place Holdings with the goal of maximizing "the value of its commercial real estate." And in Manhattan, there's no better way to maximize profits than by selling to a condo developer. The site can hold a 300,000-square-foot mixed-use building as of right, and it could look something like this:

We should have a separate thread for 42 Trinity Place, which looks to be about 600 ft. or so based on rendering.
