Trinity Court Building is the name of several structures that have occupied the address 70, 74, and 76 Trinity Place, between Rector and Albany Streets, in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan in New York City.[1]

First building[edit]

Second building[edit]

Third building[edit]

Trinity Church, which owns the site, had its offices and preschool in the 1927 building. In 2015, the church faced a choice of a $33 million renovation to bring it up to code, or to replace it with a new building at a cost of about $35 million. The vestry decided on the latter and tore the structure down. In its place, it planned to construct a new building with an address of 68-74 Trinity Place.[2]

Originally, 310,000 square feet (29,000 m2) of primarily luxury condominiums with a modern glass facade was planned. Due to community opposition the plans were changed, with a smaller commercial building incorporating community-friendly uses. The new design also uses bronzed aluminum to better fit in with the church and a preserved footbridge from the previous building, and incorporates stained glass and terra cotta embellishments salvaged form the 1927 edifice.[2][3] The third building, known as Trinity Commons, topped out in 2018[4] and will open in 2021.[5]
