Situated within Manhattan, Two Bridges is continuing to undergo extensive development, at which a fourth skyscraper is proposed for construction.

Set to complete in 2021, this new mixed-use skyscraper will incorporate over 700 apartments over 62 storeys, of which 183 housing units (approximately 25 percent), will be placed within affordable brackets to counteract the increased demand for housing in the area.

Located at Clinton Street, Starrett Corporation is behind the proposed new development and aim to deliver a number of benefits within the build by incorporating a number of retail and communal facilities.

Construction work would begin in 2018 and contain shopping outlets, fitness facilities and office space, in addition to providing essential landscaping in order for the development to blend seamlessly within the space.

The construction alongside three other developments will not only provide long-term benefits, but attract further tourism to the area and make the area a more appealing and affordable place to live.

However, although Josh Siegel, President of Starrett Corporation has said, “We recognize it’s a prominent building, but we are building in accordance with the existing zoning", residents have already expressed their increased concerns regarding the construction of the new building.
