The KPF-designed residential tower is featured in the museum’s new exhibit “Residential Rising: Lower Manhattan Since 9/11,” highlighting the district’s shift in programming.
The exhibit is the focus of a recent article by Architectural Record, which provides background on the area’s growth as a residential neighborhood over the last two decades. Neighboring Battery Park, the Skyscraper Museum, founded in 1996, has witnessed this change firsthand. Following September 11th, the 2008 financial crisis, and Superstorm Sandy in 2012, the exhibit covers the conversion of office towers into residential buildings and the addition of new projects in the Lower Manhattan area.
111 Murray Street is one of 12 featured buildings in the exhibit. The new construction tower, completed in 2018, features 157 units across 59 stories. The building’s height mediates between the lower elevations of Tribeca and the towering structures of the World Trade Center area.
