Superstructure is close to topping out at 215 Chrystie, the 28-story tower from developers Ian Schrager, HFZ Capital Group, and the Witkoff Group. With only one residential floor and the rooftop mechanical space left to pour, the tower has almost reached its final height and has started to become visibly prominent in its Bowery neighborhood. Installation of the project's signature sloped windows has also made significant progress, surpassing the tower's halfway mark.
The tower will include 370 hotel rooms under the PUBLIC brand at the lower levels and 11 condos on the upper floors. Pritzker Prize winning architects Herzog & de Meuron have designed the tower as a rectangular extrusion with a setback volume for the upper condo floors. Sloping floor-to-ceiling glass panels are set in between angular, exposed concrete columns.
Condo interiors will be designed by John Pawson, with both half floor and full floor units. The top of the tower will be capped with a three story mechanical penthouse.
