Extell’s controversial tower at 250 South Street has seen its proposed height rise and fall, but the latest permits place it at the taller end of the spectrum, calling for the luxury building to climb 800 feet and 68 stories.

The Department of Buildings approved the latest permit applications, which were filed June 23, Curbed reported.

The project, dubbed One Manhattan Square, consists of a larger, 1.1 million-square-foot, 802-unit luxury condo tower and a shorter, 205-unit affordable rental building. Earlier plans called for the larger tower to stand 56 stories and 700 feet. Renderings were released in May.

Work has renewed again at the site, after the project was hit with a stop work order due to possibly causing nearby Cherry Street to sink several inches. Extell may be planning to rip up and repave the street. [Curbed] — Tess Hofmann
