Another apartment tower rises in Fulton Market, as 225 North Elizabeth climbs

Sterling Bay’s 28-story, 350-unit apartment development at 225 North Elizabeth.

More two-week old photos today, this time spotlighting progress at 225 North Elizabeth. I haven’t been here since dirt was being moved, so it was a surprise to see this apartment building from Sterling Bay already up to the underside of the ninth floor. And since it’s been two weeks since this visit, it’s a safe bet McHugh & McHugh have reached 11 or 12 by now.

Designed by Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture, 225 North Elizabeth will deliver 350 new units across 28 stories, with 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and room to park 90-some cars.

225 has all the big permits lined up, including:

caissons permitted 9/17/22
tower crane permitted 10/17/22
superstructure permitted 11/8/22
full building permitted 1/5/23
hoist permitted 1/6/23

Sterling Bay plans to open the tower to residents in 2024.

Here are some photos taken March 15:
