Italian-British architect Richard Rogers is one of the most influential modern architects alive today. Having designed global landmarks such as the Pompidou Centre in Paris (with Renzo Piano) and Lloyd's building in London, he and his firm, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSH+P), have been commissioned to design several high-tech buildings in the Big Apple. Since completing the handsome supertall 3 World Trade Center in 2018, Rogers has at least two major projects underway in the city. Nearly finished at 1 Beekman Street is No. 33 Park Row, a gleaming glass and steel high-rise that will become Rogers's first residential project in the city. Come spring 2021, the 23-story high-rise will bring to market 30 one- to five-bedroom condo residences overlooking City Hall Park.

As we've previously covered, the perimeter of City Hall Park is experienceing a residential renaissance having long shaken its Newspaper Row offices. Nearby top-of-the-market projects include the conversion of the Emigrant Savings Bank at 49 Chambers Street, The Woolworth Tower Residences, and the stately 25 Park Row, which is also wrapping up construction next door.
No. 33 Park Row, nicknamed the “Pearl on the Park,” will have a commercial base of retail and offices followed by 17 floors of residences above. Residents will enter from a lobby off of historic Beekman Street, named after Wilhelmus Beekman, a major Dutch landowner who is said to have used the route to bring cattle from his farmlands to grazing areas north of the Collect Pond (now drained). Centuries later, the demand for greener pastures continues. The development team explains that the intimate scale of the building is juxtaposed with the grand scale of its individual residences, which feature wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking City Hall Park and skyline. Moreso, half of all units will possess some form of outdoor space.

According to the latest amendment of the offering plan, prices will start at $1.825M which affords you an airy, seventh-floor one-bedroom measuring 924 square feet. Layouts will range from 900 to 2,900 square feet in size and all promise to convey the "warmth and texture appropriate to residential dwellings." The finishes and craftsmanship are inspired by the history of Lower Manhattan and include decorative copper screen fins around balconies and terraces, and distinctive dark steel framing on the façade. Floors are laid in white oak and kitchens will don Tundra Grey marble and a suite of Miele appliances. The top floor will host a one-of-a-kind penthouse with a private garden and loggia while the fifth floor will be devoted to spoiling and pampering residents. Amenities include a fitness center and yoga studio.
The modest-for-Manhattan, 95,000-square-foot development is being steered by Urban Muse, and Consigli Building Group, formerly T.G. Nickel & Associates is the general contractor. A recent meander through the quickly-transformed area shows the color-coded exterior (a Rogers trademark) just about done. It's become hard to believe that J&R Music World ever existed (RIP first-apartment boombox). The building's 15,000 square feet of retail and commercial space is already being actively marketed by Compass; once leased, it should return some foot traffic and vibrancy to the prime and storied stretch.

While condo sales prices flat in the Financial District in recent years, prospects grow every rosier as the neighborhood takes on more round-the-clock energy. Young creative firms such as Spotify continue to flock into offices typically reserved for Wall Street firms. Last year, a sliver of good news hit the digital presses when the New York Post announced that Sir Norman Foster, a former Yale architecture school classmate of Richard Rogers, is back on board designing 2 World Trade Center.
RSH+P's other New York projects include a dashing addition to the landmarked Otis Elevator Company Building at 260 Eleventh Avenue in West Chelsea and maybe the revival of a long-shelved plan for a trio of towers adjacent to Queens' Silvercup Studios.
