A new look is available at a supertall tower at the Financial District’s 42 Trinity Place.

The project has grown from roughly 300,000 square feet to more than a million square feet since its last renderings were revealed, New York YIMBY reported, because of Trinity Church’s roughly 600,000 square feet of unused air rights that were added to the original allotment of the project.

The project now also includes plans for a 29-story hotel at the long vacant 50 Trinity Place.

Studio C Architects designed the newest renderings, which were obtained by YIMBY. Current plans show an 80-story tower which would stand 1,015 feet tall. Still, the website reported, due to the air rights that have been added to the project, the tower could rise even higher.

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

Meanwhile, developers have been flocking to the area. Surrounding projects include 50 West Street, 125 Greenwich Street and 68-74 Trinity Place. [NY YIMBY] — Claire Moses
