With the appearance of a new batch of renderings, it seem Soho Properties' residential tower at 45 Park Place is thismuch closer to rising. 6sqft spotted the new renderings for the condo tower on SOMA Architects' website, and divulge a few more details on the project: permits for the tower say it will rise 39 stories, or 665 feet, and will contain just 46 condos . In all, the building will cover 120,000 square feet. So far, those involved have been tight-lipped about the project, so it seems reasonable that the new, sketchy renderings may not depict the final design for the tower. Soho Properties secured $33 million in financing for 45 Park Place in early September, and construction is expected to being sometime in 2015 with a completion in 2017. Two structures, a cast iron building and an Italian Renaissance-style building, will be razed to make room for the tower.
45 Park Place will rise alongside Soho Properties chief Sharif El Gamal's three-story Islamic cultural museum and open space at 51 Park Place. The museum will be designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel.
