Landmarks Approval Of Mixed-Use Tower At 77 Greenwich Street

A 35-story mixed-use project in Manhattan’s Financial District can proceed, thanks to approval from the Landmarks Preservation on the 8th of March, reports newyorkyimby.com.

The project is at 77 Greenwich Street (a.k.a. 42 Trinity Place) and needed LPC approval because it would cantilever over the Robert and Anne Dickey House, an individual landmark immediately to the south at 67 Greenwich Street (a.k.a. 28-30 Trinity Place).

The Dickey House is a four-story townhouse constructed as a three-and-a-half-story structure in the Federal style between 1809-10. Alterations were made in 1872, and a one-story rear addition was constructed in 1922. It was designated an individual landmark in 2005.

The site (minus the 1922 rear addition) is now planned to become part of a 476-seat public school, which will occupy both the landmark and the base of the new tower. The proposal first went before the LPC in February.

However the cantilever design was requested to be revised: portions that were to cantilever 4 feet, 12 feet and 12 feet will now cantilever 2 feet, 6 feet and 10 feet.

Another concern was a yellow signage pylon on the southern end of the Trinity Place: it has been deleted from the revised tower design.

The project, being developed by Trinity Place Holdings, calls for 85 condominiums and also calls for 7,000 sqft of retail space.
