77 Greenwich St Gets Underway With Submitted Plans
New building applications were filed to erect 77 Greenwich St, a 42-story, 281k SF, 500-foot-tall tower at 42 Trinity Place (pictured).
A former Syms clothing store, the building—which has been in the approval process for years—will have an eight-floor, 56k SF elementary school, a 5k SF ground-floor retail space, 28 stories of apartments, two amenity floors and two mechanical floors, NY Yimby reports.
The school will be set up in the landmarked Dickey House next door—which will be renovated by the School Construction Authority—with the tower being cantilevered above. There will also be a roof deck play area for students on the fourth floor. These plans were approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission in March.
The residential space will total 90 condos spread across 162k SF, making each about 1,800 SF. Each condo is expected to cost between $2k and $3k/SF. Amenities will include a gym, three roof decks, a children’s play area, a lounge with a kitchen and a dog spa.
Expected to be completed in 2019, the tower is being designed by FXFowle and developed by Trinity Place Holdings, headed by former Forest City executive Matthew Messinger. [NYY]
