Construction has topped out on 799 Broadway, a 12-story office building in Greenwich Village. Designed by Perkins + Wills and developed by Columbia Property Trust, the 182-foot-tall project will contain 180,000 square feet of commercial space marketed by JLL. The corner lot, which is located at the intersection of Broadway and East 11th Street, was purchased by Normandy Real Estate Partners and Ares Management in 2016 for $101 million and required the demolition of several low-rise structures.
Recent photographs show the reinforced concrete superstructure awaiting the installation of the floor-to-ceiling glass curtain wall. The main renderings depicts a number of stacked and interlocking volumes on the eastern elevation and an architectural height approaching the prominence of the steeple of Grace Church, located directly across the street to the east. The light, modern look of the project will create a bold contrast with the surrounding neighborhood, which mostly consists of traditional buildings with brick and stone façades.
Landscaped outdoor terraces will be positioned atop the numerous setbacks, with some stretching the entire length of the superstructure from east to west. The northern profile is the widest and is more evenly tiered. Office tenants will get abundant natural light exposure, especially in the morning hours. The 14th Street-Union Square station is just three blocks to the north, with access to the 4, 5, 6, L, N, Q, R, and W trains.
YIMBY last reported that 799 Broadway is slated to open sometime by the end of 2020, though sometime in early 2021 is now more likely.
