The tower formerly known as 101 Murray Street and 101 Tribeca is making moves. A tipster spotted a teaser site for the future KPF-designed condo tower, which will now be known as 111 Murray Street. The site doesn't reveal much, but it likely means sales will launch soon. The site says the development is a "collaboration of design visionaries," including designer David Rockwell, architect David Mann, and landscape architect Edmund Hollander. In other words, these condos will be "very high end," per our tipster, but that should surprise no one. The 139 apartments will average 2,627 square feet, and include studios to five-bedrooms, plus penthouses.
The tower, located on a site that used to hold a St. John's University building, is being developed by Fisher Brothers and Witkoff, and permits are currently pending with the Department of Buildings. The permits show that the building will rise 66 stories and 857 feet, which means it will likely be taller than Shvo's tower at 125 Greenwich Street (permits put that building at 841 feet, but there have been conflicting reports).
Preliminary renderings for 111 Murray showed a slender glass tower with a fluted top, but since the project is still in the very early stages, that could change.
