New York City's tallest residential building to open in 2011


 
30 Park Place is a new limestone and cast stone building under construction in New York City’s Lower Manhattan area.  It will be the tallest residential building in the city, at 912 feet. Construction began in June of 2008 and is expected to be completed in 2011. 
 
The new building is being constructed next to the Woolworth Building, once the world’s tallest building at 57 stories and 792 feet at its completion in 1913.
 
The project is being developed by Silverstein Properties and designed by Robert A. M. Stern, Dean of the Yale University School of Architecture.  The project will contain a Four Seasons Hotel on the lower 22 floors, consisting of 175 rooms, one-quarter of which will be suites, including a 3,700-sq-ft "royal" suite.  
 
The condominiums will consist of 143 luxury residents, some as large as 6,500 sq ft. Amenities include a 75-ft heated indoor pool, spa & fitness center, restaurant, lounge area and children's room.
 
A separate entrance and lobby at 30 Park Place serves the residences.  The Hotel entrance on Barclay Street leads visitors into four floors of lobbies, lounges, restaurant, meeting & banquet facilities, spa, fitness center and pool.  A second entrance to the restaurant is on Church Street.  The project also includes a landscaped public plaza.
 
This new, mixed-use development is being built according to "green" guidelines, and will bridge the revitalized World Trade Center and the established neighborhood of Tribeca.
