    Default 21 Ann Street

    Any clue what's going on this site? Demo prep work has started with 109 & 111 Nassau Street and I think 113 Nassau is an empty lot.

    Default Is that District?

    Are you thinking of District (districtny.com)? Amy Sacco (the nightclub queen) allegedly is buying there.

    I think that this hotel might be on a small lot located next to 109-113 Nassau/21-23 Ann. I think that the latter addresses are part of a different project. According to the DOB's website, a 28 story building will rise there, and SLCE are the architects.

    21 Ann Street

    Developer Ann Nassau Realty LLC is currently overseeing construction of a multi-use office and residential building at 21 Ann Street. The 170,000-square-foot development will feature retail and office space through the fourth floor and studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom condominiums on floors five through 28. Additional amenities will include a landscaped outdoor area, a gym, a great room, a pool room, a simulation golf room, and a multimedia room. The building will also feature round-the-clock doorman service.

    Daily Activities

    This information was last updated on July 17, 2007.

    Contractor Gateway is currently at work demolishing the existing buildings at the site. The building at 21 Ann Street has been totally demolished, 109-111 Nassau should be totally demolished by the end of this week, and 113 Nassau will be down by mid-August.
    Once demolition has been completed, foundation work is expected to begin immediately. A second contractor, BRF, will be responsible for new construction, which is expected to last for approximately 20 months.

    28 stories will be barely visible in that area. I think the site is irregular so the design at least, has the potential to be interesting.

    By the way, you left out another bit of information from LowerManhattan.info:

    Q: When will this project be completed?

    A: Construction of the new development at 21 Ann Street is expected to conclude by approximately February 2009.

    ^Thanks. This is a small one by downtown standards.

    These lots front onto little "Theater Alley" which runs between Nassau & Park Row ...

    The sites have an awesome view of the Woolworth Building over the low rise J&R buildings on Park Row facing City Hall Park.

    Pics below show 109-111 Nassau a few weeks ago -- and the same lot after it was demolished ...

    It appears that this project does not include the empty lot on Nassau which is just north of the site.

    Aha -- Thanks ...

    That does make sense (see the MAP below) because for 21 Ann [demo'd] to connect with the 3 lots on Nassau which have been or are being demo'd -- 109-111 Nassau [down], 113 Nassau [about to come down] & 115-117 Nassau [down] -- then those combined lots would wrap around the existing building that sits on the NW corner of Ann / Nassau ...

    2 Pics below of [1] 113 Nassau (under the netting at left) and [2] the empty lots at 115-117 looking west towards the Woolworth ...

    So, Lofter, to your knowledge, is the empty lot part of this project?

    According to NYC DOF (see document below with Block / Lot numbers) the lot at 21 Ann has been combined (see Map below) with the lots at 109-111 Nassau (the building here was just demolished ) & 113 Nassau (in the process of being demolished).

    The lot at 115-117 Nassau (~ 50' x 100') is NOT part of this parcel ...

    Thanks Lofter!
    115-117 Nassau is being utilized as a parking lot for the Nassau Bar (bikini bar) across the street.
