    The entire facade here (both buildings) facing onto Broadway have been demo-ed.

    The Application for that demolition was Approved on 6/18/2013 and Permit Issued on 9/24/2013.

    Job Description:

    DEMOLITION OF EXISTING FLOORS AND FRONT BACK FACADE OF THE TWO EXISTING S STORY BUILDINGS IN CONJUNCTION WITH ALT1 104402816
    Related BIS Job Numbers: 104402816

    That related Job is the original Alt 1 Application, which retained the two 5-story structures and was a Vertical Enlargement of the existing building:

    Job Description:

    General construction in conjunction with RESIDENTIAL CONVERSION PORTION
    EXISTING 5 STORY COMMERCIAL BUILDING AND new vertical enlargement. Obtain new
    C of O.

    But now, with this demo, there's nothing of the original "existing" building left, so the Vertical Enlargement has morphed into what seemingly should be a New Building Application.

    The DOB Job Overview shows no such New Building Application for 5 Franklin Place.

    Developer Trickery at DOB????

    MODS: Should the title of this thread be changed?

    It is no longer just a proposal, or 21 stories or designed by Ben Van Berkel

    Current project is for 19 stories

    I hear those buildings are for sale again and there are interested in buyers. However, the owner has backed out in the past when close to a deal. There are lots of air rights available for those two buildings, I assume somebody will build quite the tower in the near future once a sale happens.

    Thanks, Josh. They appear to have temporary tenants who are probably on short (if not month-to-month) leases.

    Inspiration from 88 Leonard St. Another slap in the face to Broadway.



    An unfortunate consequence of not including the three block stretch of Broadway in the historic district.
