111 Murray broke ground in July of 2015, and is scheduled to be completed in 2018.
Project DescriptionFROM THE ARCHITECTS:
Rising 62 floors above the intersection of Murray and West Streets, 111 Murray brings 157 luxury residential units to the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan.
The tower distinguishes itself from most conventionally developed projects by providing additional real estate where it is most wanted - above surrounding buildings. An increase in floor plate size above the 40th floor results in a gently flared silhouette, accented by a sculpted crown, gesturing openly to the midtown skyline.
The planning and design of the project emerges from close consideration of the urban context and the programmatic needs of the units themselves. The building is oriented on the site to capture the best unobstructed river and city views and to promote a lively pedestrian environment. The softly curving form of the entry and large canopy establish a point of arrival and create a front door with a residential character and scale.
With the addition of a public plaza, residential gardens, and retail and residential amenities, the project mediates between the fine grained scale of the neighborhood fabric and the new urban development in Lower Manhattan.
