Back in January of 2017, YIMBY reported on new job applications for a site spanning 265-267 Broadway, in Tribeca. Gene Kaufman is designing the tower, and now we have the first look at plans for the project, which will yield a glassy skyscraper peaking 510 feet above the streets below.
Building applications list the total size as 144,244 square feet, to be divided between 38,139 square feet of commercial space, occupied by a hotel with 80 rooms between floors 3 and 12, and 92,671 square feet of residential space. That part will be split between 37 apartments, including a three-level unit at the top of the tower.
The design certainly seems to pay homage to 56 Leonard a few blocks to the north, and features integrated balconies and greenery draped throughout. Despite the similarities, 267 Broadway lacks the actual cantilevers of its taller counterpart, though it does seem to offer a more value-engineered equivalent.
Regardless of how heavily the inspiration has been modified, the condominium portion of the tower will feature units that are extremely large, with an average size of almost 2,500 square feet (though the triplex penthouse distorts that a bit). Despite this, the hotel is expected to be a four-star boutique, which means prices are likely to be a substantial bit lower than what 30 Park Place is commanding just a few blocks away.
Completion of the tower is anticipated for 2020, and the Roe Corporation is developing the site. Demolition permits for the existing structures have yet to be filed with the Department of Buildings.
