The condo tower planned for 111 Murray Street in Tribeca has lifted its veil of mystery. At a community board meeting last night, representatives for the developer and architects outlined the essential details of the project, and Tribeca Citizen and the Tribeca Trib shared photos of the new renderings that were presented. The tower will hold 157 condos and rise 792 feet and 62 stories, which is shorter than what was reported in February, but a tiny bit taller than what was reported earlier this month. After 56 Leonard, it will be the second tallest building in the neighborhood. Demolition of the old St. John's building is currently underway, and the developers, Fisher Brothers and Witkoff Group, expect to start work on the tower's foundation later this year. The whole shebang will open in 2018.
The earlier renderings that circulated look pretty close to what was presented last night. Kohn Pedersen Fox designed the building, and Hollander Design Landscape Architects designed the 10,600-square-foot public plaza that will be at its base. The plaza will feature lots of plants, a sculpture, moveable chairs and tables, a lawn, and a water feature. There will be a one-story retail pavilion beside it, adjacent to the neighboring building. The plaza will be the last thing to be complete, as it will be a staging site for construction materials.
The building already has a teaser site, and the marketing team previously said that the building would launch sales this spring.
