Exterior work is progressing at 50 Trinity Place, a 28-story Aloft Hotel in the Financial District. Designed by Peter Poon Architects and developed by FIT Investment Corporation, which purchased the property for $ 15 million in 2012, the 77,310-square-foot reinforced concrete tower will provide 173 rooms on the corner of Trinity Place and Rector Street, diagonally opposite Trinity Church. Cauldwell Wingate is the main contractor for the project.

Since the last update in July, virtually all windows have been mounted on the tower, and preparations for the facade are underway.

Most windows are located on the eastern corner and northern elevation of the relatively slender edifice, while the western and southern walls are constructed as glossy concrete surfaces.

An interesting element that has been added to the design of 50 Trinity Place is a series of horizontal strips that subtly protrude from the eastern profile every other floor above the multi-story podium. This seems to match the previous renderings. The external mechanical hoist is attached to the north side of the tower.

Architectural reproductions also show the main logo placed under a sweeping mirrored white canopy with a striped surface on the underside. This will cantilever and arch upwards over the front doors, which will be located on the corner of Trinity Place and Rector Street and have a double-height atrium. The podium is the only part of the Aloft Hotel that will have dark gray panels, whereas the main building above will be covered in a light white skin. At the very top, it appears to be a transparent box-shaped frame of metal grilles that will cover a water tower above the roof railing.

YIMBY last predicted that 50 Trinity Place will be completed sometime in 2022, most likely within the second half of the year.
