Construction has gone vertical on the Moinian Group 7 Platt Street project in Manhattan’s financial district.  The developers will be working with AECOM as the general contractors on the 464-foot tall mixed-use project. Additionally, it is under the 421-a program, a New York City Department of Housing Preservation & Development exemption which allows for partial tax exemption for new projects, while also guaranteeing its units are rent stabilized. The project’s ideal location means residents will be just a short walk away from the neighborhood’s subway stations. Moreover, there is nearby access to the Pier 11 Wall Street ferry stop for NYC Ferry routes.

The project designer and architect is Rockwell Group and Hill West Architects respectively.  There will be between six and nine apartments per floor, a floor dedicated to amenities on the seventh floor and common terraces on the 33rd and 38th floors. Once completed, the 35-story luxury community will offer studio, one- and two-bedroom units. Additionally, there will be penthouse options that offer an accompanying lounge area. Apartment spaces will have an average scope of 680 square feet. There will also be 43,740 square feet of retail space on the first five stories and 34 below-grade parking spaces.
