The 19 New Buildings Under Construction in Tribeca

Despite pleas from local politicians and Community Board 1, the city is dismantling the Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center, which has overseen construction in the area since 9/11 Department of Transportation’s Lower Manhattan Commissioner’s office [thanks, James]. You don’t have to write a post about the 19 new buildings underway around here—which is what this is—to realize what a misguided decision the de Blasio administration is making. And this post doesn’t even include any of the following: new buildings where the curtain wall is already at least partially installed (56 Leonard, 19 Park Place, et al); the many conversions (443 Greenwich, 11 Beach, et al); massive projects such as the Worth Street reconstruction; anything outside Tribeca (such as the World Trade Center and Seaport District). P.S. I did not include the buildings where demolition appears to be a ways off—because as anyone who remembers 2008 can tell you, a downturn can happen in a flash.

Twelve stories, 23 units; “the walls will be made of concrete […] less than an inch thick” and windows will be motorized, according to the New York Times. Rendering here. UPDATE: A rep for the project sent over an update rendering (above), which seems to differ mainly (only?) in that it has one balcony in the center middle instead of two. Also, the windows are no longer going to be motorized.

Like 30 Warren, 75 W. Broadway is a Cape Advisors development. It’ll be eight stories on the site of 59-61 Warren; 65-69 and 71-73 W. Broadway; and 57 and 59 Murray. From the Real Deal: “The 55,000-square-foot building at 75 W. Broadway will hold 21 apartments across more than 45,400 square feet of residential space, with an additional, nearly 9,700 square feet of ground-floor retail. […] The developer reportedly will have to sell apartments at 75 West Broadway for north of $3,000 per square foot to make a profit.” No renderings yet.

  1. How many small shops and restaurants will close due to high rents while these 19 new buildings are built?

    • Love Erik’s comment ref 2008 – 45000+ luxury condos coming on the market and then ear.. KABOOM?!

      It’s pretty obvious that what we are witnessing here is brown bag builder / NYC regulator “arrangements” $$$ (cough) gone wild.

      Love to see what is going on with the federal probes into the current administration.

  2. I thought they closed the LMCCC, which was created after 9/11, in 2013. The role of DOT’s Lower Manhattan Commissioner’s office was really supposed to be to coordinate *street closures* due to all these projects.

    Politicians apparently cannot believe that some government programs are not eternal.

    • Hi James,
      Well as you can see they are certainly closing streets! Just not sure the word coordination could be in the NYC govt vocabulary :)! Discombobulated certainly should be.

  3. New York is a crowded city, and it is in the middle of a huge economic boom.

    There will definitely be stresses on stores and on services (schools, etc), but I think stores and restaurants will respond to the dynamics, and Tribeca will continue to be one of the best neighborhoods in New York to live in.

    Lastly, everyone talks about “buildings” and “developers” and “boards” and “agencies” etc, but let us not forget that the people moving into these 19 buildings are FAMILIES, with adults and children, who will become our friends and neighbors. Let’s welcome them.
