Welcome to the Elevator World News Podcast. This week’s news podcast is sponsored by LIFTEX 25-STORY CONVERSION HEAVY ON VIEWS OF NYC LANDMARKS New York YIMBY recently toured the conversion of a 131-year-old coal power plant into a 25-story structure designed by COOKFOX that will house 70 residential units and 2,500 sq. ft. of lower-level retail, revealing a plethora of views of NYC landmarks old and new. Being developed by Jeff Greene at 100 Vandam Street in the emerging Hudson Square neighborhood at Vandam and Greenwich streets, the tower features a pair of setbacks, one near the top and another that will become a large rooftop terrace; loggia gardens designed by Terrain-NYC that will be watered by collected wastewater; and, perhaps most importantly, views. These include the Empire State Building, the emerging Willliamsburg waterfront, Kohn Pedersen Fox’s One Vanderbilt supertall office tower and Herzog and de Meuron’s “Jenga-like” 56 Leonard Street in Tribeca, to name a few. Completion is anticipated next year.
