Construction has begun for a 24-story mixed-use tower at 360 N Green Street in Fulton Market District. The 399-foot high rise developed by Sterling Bay will feature two retail spaces spanning a total of 5,400 square feet, along with offices as the primary programming. This project is set to replace a former vacant lot at the northeast corner of the rapidly developing neighborhood.
