Vacant Tribeca corner may give way to this glassy 10-story development

So far only two retail tenants have signed and the residential section is up in the air

In October 2015, news emerged that a small coffee shop at the corner of Church and Chambers Street would be demolished to make room for a 10-story building developed by Greystone Development. Now, Tribeca Citizen has managed to get its hands on a new rendering for the project, though it’s still not clear if a proposed residential section of this building will be built.

On the building’s website, the project description states that there’s room for about 12,000-square-feet of residential development. The city’s Department of Buildings however has only approved work on two floors below ground, and two above.

That makes sense considering the fact that in October last year marketing materials for the project, located at 108 Chambers Street, revealed that the 1,600-square-feet of commercial space on the ground floor had already been fully leased. The tenants? Starbucks and the Vitamin Shoppe.

This latest rendering is just a slight variation on the first rendering released for the project in October which depicted a nighttime scene and had the Starbucks and Vitmain Shoppe logos in them. If the latest rendering is anything to go by, there are plans for a few green terraces higher up in the building, but we’re still waiting on confirmation on whether a residential section is moving forward.
