Gary Barnett’s Extell Development is looking to downsize the scope of its proposed tower at 250 South Street in Lower Manhattan.

The developer is looking to change the height of the building on the former Pathmark site to 56 stories from 71, which comes down to roughly 100 feet, according to Bowery Boogie. The building will include 646 residential units across more than 748,000 square feet, according to the website. The building is set to include 25,516 square feet for commercial use.

Some of the amenities that were originally proposed — a bowling alley and Turkish baths — were also canceled. The building’s plans still include a pool, a residential lounge and a fitness center in the basement.

The building would still be much taller than the rest of the buildings in the neighborhood. [Bowery Boogie] Claire Moses
