Trinity Church Wall Street has unveiled the design for a new building at 74 Trinity Place in the Financial District. The multifaceted design reflects nearly two years of engagement with the greater Lower Manhattan community about the new building.
“Our building is a statement of Trinity’s dedication to serving the people of this community, this neighborhood, and the city of New York for a fourth century,” said the Rev. William Lupfer, rector of Trinity Church. “This parish center is a reflection of our core values and commitment to hospitality.”
Designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects as a ministry and community hub for the centuries-old Trinity Church Wall Street, the building will incorporate numerous functions into a single structure that will help meet the present and future priorities of Trinity’s growing, active congregation and provide mission-driven services to the residents of Lower Manhattan.
Featuring open public spaces and multipurpose rooms, the center will connect workers, families, young people and neighbors to Trinity’s faith community, events and programming, and support for those in need.
Located directly behind Trinity Church between Thames Street and Rector Street, 74 Trinity Place will include 26 floors totaling 310,000 square feet. Trinity Church Parish Center will form the base of the building, the first nine floors totaling approximately 150,000 square feet that will house gathering spaces, an education center, a gymnasium, gallery and performance areas, family and youth spaces, and staff offices. Above the nine-story base will be a 160,000-square-foot commercial office tower.
