Talking about continuing construction of stalled projects, after we found out that 56 Leonard Street is on, we heard that another giant is getting ready to start again. 30 Park Place, Four Seasons Downtown, owned by Silverstein Properties was put on hold in 2010 after foundations were done. Designed by architect Robert A.M. Stern, the 912 foot (378m) tall building will serve as a bridge between the futuristic style of the 1 World Trade Center (former name Freedom Tower) and the classic Woolworth Building on the same block.


"Sharing a city block with the Woolworth Building, Cass Gilbert's iconic 1913 skyscraper, and strategically located one block from the World Trade Center redevelopment site, the Four Seasons Downtown combines a 175-key five-star Four Seasons hotel with 143 top-end condominium apartments in a slender 80-story tower that will become an important landmark among the constellation of towers in Lower Manhattan.

The hotel entrance on Barclay Street leads visitors into four floors of lobbies, lounges, restaurants, ballrooms, meeting facilities, and a spa and fitness center. The public rooms of the hotel face a through-block garden framed by a lower annex building that conceals building services and access to below-grade parking. A separate entrance and lobby on Park Place serves the residences.

Amenities for the apartments are located on the twenty-ninth floor; the function rooms and fitness center open to exterior loggias. The limestone and cast stone shaft of the tower rises to a dramatic skyline profile of full-floor penthouses and setback terraces."
