Construction has reached the top of the podium section at 1245 Broadway, a 23-story, 200,000-square-foot commercial office building NoMad. Workers from StructureTech NY and Triton Construction are continuing to tie the steel rebar and build the formwork for the reinforced concrete perimeter columns and floor slabs. Designed by Skidmore Owings and Merrill and co-developed by GDSNY and Sweden-based Klovern, the building will eventually top out at 318 feet tall. CBRE began leasing the building’s class A office space in late 2019.
New photos show the state of progress. Once the formwork for the poured columns and floors is taken out, work will move inward and construction will begin on the next tiered section of the edifice. Several staggered setbacks will give way to landscaped outdoor terraces on the way up to the building’s flat parapet.
1245 Broadway will surpass the height of the abutting old structure to the south and bring an eclectic combination of contemporary architectural styles to NoMad. The building’s balanced mix of materials, subtly detailed cast-in-place concrete work, and uniquely shaped voids and cutouts will make it stand out among its stone and masonry-clad neighbors.
The 34th Street-Herald Square subway station is one block away to the north of 1245 Broadway with access to the B, D, F, M, N, Q, R, W, and PATH trains.
Work is expected to be completed around the end of 2020.
