Just days following the release of updated images of Wolf Point’s soon-to-rise 66-story eastern most tower, additional renderings of the three-skyscraper riverfront mega-development have emerged — including a fresh picture of the completed project shown in its entirety. First reported by DNAinfo, the image includes a clear look at Wolf Point’s third and tallest phase: the imposing mixed-use south tower.
Expected to contain 70 floors of Class A office space and luxury residential units, Wolf Point South looks to soar well above the
750-foot 650-foot height of Wolf Point East and appears at least twice as tall as the completed 493-foot apartment high-rise known as Wolf Point West.
Provided the image is proportionally accurate, the southern tower now looks likely to break the official supertall threshold of 980 feet, even without the use of an architectural spire. Though zoning is reportedly in place for a 950-foot building, it’s not unreasonable (nor unprecedented) that Wolf Point South could grow beyond what was initially specified.
Designed by Connecticut-based architect Pelli Clarke Pelli, both the east and south towers appear to have taken visual cues from bKL’s more rectangular Wolf Point West compared to the more rounded massing shown in previous renderings. The result is a trio of glassy buildings that appear considerably more cohesive and purposeful than before.
The 707-unit, $360 million east tower is anticipated to break ground in the first half of 2017 and open by December 2019. While no official timeline for the South Tower has been set, early public meetings for the three-phase development cited an estimated completion date of 2022 for the entire project. So far, things appear to be on track — provided the good times keep rolling.
