    The brick neo-Georgian buildng to the north at 105-107 Washington is coming down. The DEMO Permit was issued on 4.28.08.

    Apparenty the 5-story red brick walk up at 109 Washington will remain, leaving a narrow sliver lot between the two projects.

    That sucks. Why would they have an empty lot in the middle?

    Thumbs up

    I love how tall, skinny, mixed-use towers have become the norm around the World Trade Center site.

    It won't be empty. The 5-story brick will remain.

    NYC HPD shows that 109 Washington (5-story brick) has 16 Residential Units:

    The selected address: 109 WASHINGTON STREET, Manhattan 10006

    HPD #: 29251
    Active Range: 109-109
    Block: 00053
    Lot: 0006
    CD: 1
    CensusTract: 1300
    Stories: 5
    A Units: 16
    B Units: 0
    Ownership: PVT
    MDR #: 109870
    Class: A

    Undoubtedly a number of those 16 units are Rent Stabilized.

    sorry guys, but i'm confused by the postings- so you're saying BCN is building their tower on the 111 plot, but NOT on 109 or 105-107? if 105-107 has a demo permit, what is going there?

    109 was slated to stay put and 105-107 was supposedly coming down.

    However, as of last weekend, the scaffold and netting had been entirely removed from 105-107 ...

    so 105 was supposed to be part of the BCN development?

    105-107 without the scaffolding.


    There's no reason to demolish this building. Besides its attractive appearance, it unifies the buildings that will remain - 103 and 109.

    Without it, you'd have a tower at 99 Washington (at Rector), then 103, a plaza, 109, and another tower at 111.

    i agree it wouldn't make sense to break up the unity and have a plaza mid block... but if 105 is empty, who owns it now and what are they planning?

    Yeah - scaffolding has totally come down on 105-107 -

    But there were several stop work orders posted on the door - makes me think that scaffolding will return.....

    They got the full demo permit as well as related fence and scaffold permit back in April 2008, so my guess is that we'll see a fence go up soon and then new shed and scaffold will follow. The old scaffold may have come down due to inadequacy. I recall reading somewhere that this building has asbestos issues.

    last year we bid the foundation for this job and the only building that was staying was Morans. the new foundation was suposed to go from corner to corner under Morans and the new tower went up over morans.

    I agree. It's a beautiful building.
