79-unit residential project planned for Tribeca site with unloved tower

A developer is betting that people will pay top dollar for up-close views of one of the city’s most unloved sites: AT&T’s Long Lines Building in Tribeca, a windowless, 29-story hulk from the 1970s that routinely makes lists of New Yorkers’ least-favorite buildings.The plan, which was put forth by AT&T on behalf of an unnamed firm, calls for constructing a residential tower with 79 market-rate units in a small park that’s next to the Long Lines Building, according to a document filed Friday with the Department of City Planning.

An email sent to AT&T’s media office was not returned by press time. And Jon Popin, the attorney handling the process for AT&T, had no comment.But the 210-page filing includes several...
