••• They seem to finally be making some progress at 57 Reade, the building on Broadway that will one day abut the one that’s leaning. Here’s what the LMCCC has to say about it: “The John Buck Company of Chicago commissioned SLCE Architects to design a 20-story residential condominium building at 57 Reade Street in Tribeca that will have a major mid-block frontage on Broadway between Chambers and Reade Streets. According to a March 6, 2006 easement document on file with the city, the developer, officially known as 281 Broadway Holdings LLC, ‘intends to demolish the existing buildings and construct, or cause to be constructed on the Development Site a building of between 19 and 21 stories… containing… approximately 11,372 square feet of commercial/retail area on the first and second floors of the building, together with a cellar floor of approximately 5,000 square feet… and… approximately 120,731 square feet of residence space…. The Broadway facade will be a sleek, blue-tinted glass with one bay of balconies at its south end. The narrow mid-block facade at 57 Reade Street will also be blue-tinted glass with one bay of balconies but the western portion of the north façade will be a light-colored grid.” And updated last week, there was this: “Superstructure work to be completed in September 2011.” The link above has a rendering; no clue if it’s up to date.
