    Is this permit for the empty lot next to the recently built glass building on Nassau?

    Wait, is this permit for the Nassau tower site, or for the Temple Court hotel site?

    There are two development sites on this block (three if you count the almost completed rental building next-door).

    The Job Description says: "Horizontal Enlargement" of Temple Court / 5 Beekman site.

    The DOB page for 3 - 9 Beekman shows that the site (Block 90, Lot 14) includes multiple buildings & addresses.

    DOB also shows a completed application for subdividing this tax lot:

    SUBDIVISION OF TAX LOT 14 IN BLOCK 90 INTO TWO LOTS 14 AND 9014 AS PER RP602 (ATTACHED). VOLUME OF AIRSPACE ABOVE A HORIZONTAL PLANE LOT 9014 AREA BELOW HORIZONTAL PLANE LOT 14 AS NOTED IN CRFN 2008000136581 RECORDED 4/4/2008. NO CHANGE TO ZONING LOT, NOT CHANGE TO EGRESS OR OCCUPANCY. NO WORK TO BE PERFORMED UNDER THIS APPLICATION. ALL INFORMATION CONTAINED HEREIN HAS BEEN FILED WITH THE NEW YORK CITY REGISTERS OFFICE, LAND RECORDS DIVISION.

    The Agreement at DOF for that subdivision has a lot of language about airspace & horizontal planes.

    It's unclear what the building plan is. This proposed tower apparently will rise on the empty lot to the south of Temple Court. But it could also rise over a portion of the Temple Court Building itself. The full site measures about 150' along Theater Alley / Nassau and 100' along Beekman. The empty lot portion appears to measure about 35' x 100'

    Foundation well underway for the tower accompanying the rehab. Should be rising soon. The new residents and guests will bring some much needed life to this part of Nassau Street.
    47 stories, 595 feet.

    Is the Lame tower that Kaufman proposed years ago still the plan for this site?

    He meant this other garbage he produced... No way, imagine seeing that blank wall loom over City Hall.

    Now that this is combined with the Temple Court Building, there's no need for a blank wall. The building core can be against the blank wall of, eh, 29 Ann? where it already has a blank wall.

    Crane's atop the Temple Court Building. I'm assuming this will be erecting the 600-foot tower next door as well. Seems the tower and the future hotel will be interconnected and apartments in the tower will start at the 13th floor.

    I really hope that the crappy brick former J&R Buildind covered In signs is razed. It's horrible.

    There's a construction shed up along the full first floor of that one at 23-27 Park Row.

    But DOB doesn't show any permits or applications for that site on the Job Overview

    Thanks, Lofter. The other little buildings on that stretch are ok ( at least if all the crappy signs come down), but 23 is horrible.
