As the Financial District continues to grow and expand, so do the buildings. Yet another skyscraper will be appearing the lower Manhattan skyline within the coming years.

42 Trinity Place originally started out as a lot of roughly 300,000 square feet that expanded to now over a million square feet, according to New York YIMBY. The building added on roughly 600,000 square miles from Trinity Church’s unused air rights. The project also includes a 29-story hotel at the vacant 50 Trinity Place lot.

Studio C Architects designed the newest dwellings, which were obtained by YIMBY. The building height is expected to be 80 stories, and around 1,015 feet tall, however, there is potential for more growth due to the air rights that have been added to the project.

Preliminary plans for the site show that the tower will include a retail space, three floors for the Department of Education, which will be used for a school, as well as a hotel and residential units.

42 Trinity Place will be yet another addition to the ever expanding downtown skyline, joining One-Four WTC, 130 Greenwich Street, 80 South Street and possibly 45 Broad Street, all of which are completed or in the works.
