    and are those steel beams spanning the gap really necessary for structural support?

    Walked by yesterday. Looks like they are building out the ground floor already. They are at street level at least on the Church Street side. This should be above ground by Dec 31st.

    I still hold out hope it's in Credit Master's garage. Maybe it will show up on Antiques Roadshow 2057.

    A hundred years ago, the 6th Ave El ran through here, although it took at few turns before it got to 6th Ave in Greenwich Village. Up Trinity-Church, left on Murray St, right on West Broadway, left at W3rd, right at the end of 6th Ave. The area looked quite different then. There was no 6th Ave downtown and Church St was narrow.

    The construction of the IND 8th Ave subway which included the extension of 6th Ave from W 3rd St to Franklin St, and the widening of Church St from Vesey St to Canal St. Subway construction progressed while the El operated overhead. The subway opened in 1932 and the El was shut down in 1938, dismantled the following year.

    C1905. View west on Barclay St, St Peter's Church on the left. The two-track El runs along Church St.


    St Peter's Church c1914


    1928. NE corner of Barclay and Church Sts.


    c1932. View east toward Church and Barclay Sts, probably from the NY Telephone Building. Church St is widened to its present dimensions. Excavation has begun for the Post Office Building at 90 Church St.


    1933. View south on Church St from Barclay St. Hudson Terminal buildings.


    1933. Same view but from further west on Barclay St, showing the 90 Church St excavation. Trinity Pl was always wider than Church St. South from Dey St, the El widened to three-track.


    1934. View east on Barclay St from West Broadway.


    1939. View north on Church St from Barclay St. Under the Park Pl station the turn on Murray St can be seen.

    I've had them on a spare drive for awhile. Don't remember exactly where I got them, but it was a railroad or subway site.

    It's currently filed for 937 ft. Looks like the amendment increasing the building height was filed on 2/3/11.

    I don't think these interior renderings have been posted here before. From hotelchatter.com:
