The most thorough set of renderings to date have emerged for 50 West Street, the Time Equities tower that's been in the works for at least the last ten years. The site that's been owned by the developer since 1983 has nothing to show for its effortsyetas YIMBY notes the tower is still in its excavation stage. When complete, it will be one of the taller residential buildings in the city, at 64 stories and 783 feet. Helmut Jahn designed 50 West Street while the increasingly ubiquitous Thomas Juul-Hansen will handle the interiors of its 191 condos. The tower's first interior renderings only provide a small glimpse inside, appearing mostly to boast the downtown 'scraper's views and oft double-height ceilings.
Following Hurricane Sandy, Jahn made some storm-smart design changes, like moving the mechanicals out of the basement to the sixth floor and raising the lobby by three feet. The building will also have a fourth floor generator.
50 West launched its teaser site in December with an announcement of Spring 2014 availability. They really are drawing this one out. Completion is expected in 2016.
