    Default 101 Murray Street: New tower

    Could this be the site of SHoP's new tall tower?

    http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...TATE/130319903

    St. John's University property hits the block
    The TriBeCa building could fetch as much as $200 million in a sale that would most likely result in a 300,000-square-foot residential condominium.
    Edward Minskoff is interested.

    At this point it is anybodies guess; but rumor has it the developer is still 'SHoPing around' for the right architectural firm. LOL

    Aren't the Fisher Bros involved in this? If so, I hope they come up with something better than the horrible glass stick that will rise at 22 Thames.

    Get a load of this ...

    According to this blog, 101 Murray will be designed by Coop Himmelb(l)au Architects

    Description:

    101 Murray will create a new high-rise residential condominium tower in lower Manhattan, rising 860-feet tall with a large architectural feature on the roof.


    Coop Himmelb(l)au website calls it the Sky Wing Tower

    And here's what it will look like ...

    well that's completely unexpected. I'm glad I didn't buy in 101 Warren. I love that building, but the view of this is a deal breaker.

    That absurd thing can't be the final design.

    Let's pretend that this is close to what the final design would look like (yeah right). What are they planning to do with the bottom of that book stack on top of the Renaissance Hotel? Giant reflective cantilever bottom as shown in the picture? Exposed steel bracing?

    Knocking down blogs’ story, devloper says ‘Sky Wing Tower’ not plannned for Murray St.

    THE VILLAGER
    February 21, 2014

    BY SAM SPOKONY

    Any Tribecans who were browsing the real estate blogs Thursday probably spotted an alarming item — a rendering of a futuristically absurd, 860-foot residential “Sky Wing Tower” planned for 101 Murray St. (pictured above). The story, as reported by the sites, was that developers Steven Witkoff and Fisher Brothers are jointly developing the gargantuan tower on the site — which is currently a St. John’s University building — after purchasing the site from St. John’s last year for $223 million.

    Well, we checked it out…and although the Witkoff/Fisher purchase of the site is real, the story behind the rendering is false. We repeat, that monstrosity is NOT planned for 101 Murray St., according to the developer.

    It turns out that Coop Himmelb(l)au, the Austrian architectural firm, who designed that rendering, has absolutely no connection to that development site, according to a spokesperson for Fisher Brothers. According to the firm’s site, the tower is planned for an unspecified location in New York City.

    “There have been some recent online blog posts about 101 Murray St. that are wrong,” Suzi Halpin, the spokesperson, wrote in a Feb. 21 email to Downtown Express. “There is no design rendering yet. The image that was used in those inaccurate posts is not the rendering, and the cited architectural firm is not working on the project.”

    We’ll keep you updated on what actually is planned for that project…and hopefully the response to this zany hoax will keep the developers from attempting a similarly harebrained skyscraper.

    Thank goodness. Curious to know what that...thing on the top is supposed to be all about.

    I quite like the (wacky) design for the Seoul tower.

    This is quite old now, but it was mentioned in the Flatiron District thread.


    This Tribeca Tower Could Be FiDi's Tallest Residential Building

    June 13, 2014, by Hana R. Alberts



    Renderings of planned 101 Murray Street, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, via New York YIMBY.

    Whew, it turns out the tall residential tower planned for Murray Street won't actually have a metallic spaceship at its pinnacle. But man, will it be tall. As first reported by New York YIMBY, Fisher Brothers and The Witkoff Group—developers of the site between Greenwich and West streets that was formerly a dorm for St. John's University—have tapped Kohn Pedersen Fox to design a glassy skyscraper for 101 Murray that gently curves outwards into a slightly wider apex. The 63-story building would house 129 condos, and while its exact height is as of yet unclear, YIMBY approximates it at 950 feet, which would make it downtown's tallest residential building. Oh, and it got a trendy new name, apparently: 101 Tribeca.



    A site that the same Fisher-Witkoff duo used to own at 22 Thames Street was slated to house downtown's tallest residential building—a highly coveted superlative, or so it seems—but they just sold off the vacant parcel to Michael Shvo for a whopping $180 million. It's unclear whether Shvo will build the Rafael Vinoly-designed slender glassy thing that was supposed to rise 957 feet.



    Either way, YIMBY notes, what's planned for Murray Street will trump Silverstein-Robert A.M. Stern limestone goliath's, 30 Park Place, as well as Jenga-tastic tower 56 Leonard, and the many, many other Financial District-area residential projects.

    Revealed: 101 Tribeca, Downtown's (Future) Tallest Residential Building [YIMBY]
