The Committee on Design has reviewed the updated plans for 330 N Green Street in Fulton Market. Located just north of the intersection with W Wyman Street and replacing a vacant lot that was once the home of Coyne College, the mixed-use proposal is moving forward with a new taller and slimmer proposal we last covered in October. The Gensler-designed tower will be the third in the immediate area by developer Sterling Bay, with 360 N Green Street reaching its final height this week just to the north.
Having received a major redesign from its original iteration of the ‘The Porch’, the new proposal will now be the tallest of the trio and the first to break into skyscraper height. The change in plans was due to a change in demand from tech and business clients according to Sterling Bay in the committee presentation, the previous desire of large floor plates has given way to smaller, more tailor-made floors and outdoor space. The tower will now offer both after a handful of changes from its October proposal as well.
Receiving a slight haircut from 35 stories, the development will now yield 33 stories and rise 503 feet tall. The five-story podium now drops to four while shedding the prairie-inspired top floor and deep inset vertical window bays. It will now deliver four floors of dark brick-clad space with storefront windows lining the first floor and punched openings on the remaining floors. However this ground level will still hold 13,650 square-feet of commercial space split into two, as they flank the central light court entered through an opening from the street and leading to the main lobby.
The remainder of the podium will have a larger fitness center, 207-vehicle parking spaces, and a large fourth floor amenity space with a gaming room, lounge, and bar. This will open up to the rooftop terrace dubbed ‘The Meadow’, which had an outdoor pavilion removed in exchange for seating space and open grass space for relaxation. Above all this the tower itself will utilize a similar approach as 360 N Green Street, with the floor plans forming two separate column-free linear spaces tied together by the central core.
This approach will allow for anchor tenants to have large floors with a separation, and for smaller companies to lease only half of a floor and still feel exclusive. Between the two sides will be a small terrace on each end allowing for all floors to have outdoor spaces, with larger ones on level 18 due to a mechanical floor above. As it rises, the easternmost portion of the tower terminates at the 30th floor, allowing for the final two penthouse levels to have an even larger rooftop deck facing towards the city.
Clad in a blue tint curtain wall with vertical fins running the full height of the structure, the new building will rise above the nearly completed The Row nearby. At the moment Sterling Bay has not announced any potential tenants for the 683,000 square feet of office space it will deliver if it builds the tower, but it is in the process of gaining all the necessary approvals to proceed once it does land a company to do so. It is worth noting that although the Sterling Bay website has not updated its renderings, it now shows a 2025 delivery date.
