How was this building rated?

This shimmering sentinel at 50 West Street, a taller, kindred spirit to the glorious, curved reflective glass tower at 17 State Street overlooking the harbor, is a major addition to Lower Manhattan’s celebrated and changing skyline.

The 778-foot-high tower has a roof slanted upwards toward the pinnacle of One World Trade Center, a few blocks to the north.  It has 191 condominium apartments.

It was developed by Time Equities, a real estate company headed by Francis Greenburger.

The 64-story structure was designed by Helmut Jahn of Murphy/Jahn Architects of Chicago, who designed CitySpire, Park Avenue Tower and 425 Lexington Avenue in New York and the great State of Illinois Center in Chicago, and Gruzen Sampton LLC. SLCE is the architect of record.

The slim tower is notable for its stainless-steel spandrels and curved glass corners above its east and west low-rise bases.

Its slanted top is lacy and open and has two observatory stanchions overlooking the harbor and the Statue of Liberty in a short, indented and open, central section of its south façade.

The building will be connected to Battery Park City by the glass-covered West Thames Pedestrian Bridge on which construction has just begun.  The bridge was originally designed by SHoP Architects and was redesigned by WXY Architects.  Its design has undulating curves straddling the West Side Highway and those curves complement the tower’s curved corners that are extremely appealing.

The curved south side of the tower has a landscaped plaza that provides an alternate and more attractive pedestrian walkway from Battery Park City to Greenwich Street than the existing walkway through the Battery Tunnel Garage.

The building will also 15 small offices on the third floor. An earlier plan had called for a 55-room hotel on floors 1 through 13, 48 "full-service residential units" on floors 14 through 18 and 259 residential condominium apartments on floors 20 through 63.

The project required zoning text changes to allow a plaza at the site and to permit the transfer of development rights above the Battery Tunnel garage to be used "only in the at-grade area north of J. P. Ward Street, and by special permit only."

In addition, the project required the demapping of an 8-inch strip between J. P. Ward Street and the applicant’s site and a demapping for "a plane above J. P. Ward and the portion of the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel Approach located 37.2 feet above the area between West, Washington, Morris and J. P. Ward Streets.

The Brooklyn Battery Tunnel Approach has about 2.7 million square feet of unused air rights and the 50 West Street project uses 183,000 square feet of those air rights.
