Demolition is continuing at 1841 and 1845 Broadway on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, where a 24-story mixed-use building is planned to rise. Scaffolding and black netting completely shroud 1841 Broadway, and it appears that the neighboring structure at 1845 Broadway has been partially razed. Both properties are owned by Global Holdings Management Group and Ancora Engineering is listed as the applicant of record on demolition permits, which were filed late last year.
New photographs show the current state of 1841 Broadway, which is located at the corner of West 60th Street and is being prepped for demolition. 1845 Broadway stands immediately to the north and has been dismantled down to the level of the sidewalk scaffolding. It is possible that both structures could reach street level by the end of the year given their relatively small size.
The structure at 1841 Broadway is 96 years old, stands 12 stories, and spans 114,022 square feet. 1845 Broadway is a 110-year-old, four-story commercial building yielding 15,068 square feet. The two sites are located steps to the north of the 59th Street-Columbus Circle subway station, which is serviced by A, B, C, D, and 1 trains. The two-tower Time Warner Center sits to the south, directly across West 60th Street.
It is unclear what the new design will look like or how it will fit into the context of the neighborhood. With a parapet nearly twice the height of the existing 1841 Broadway, the structure will provide occupants unobstructed view of Columbus Circle, Central Park South, and the residential supertalls of Billionaires’ Row.
No start or completion date has been announced for the new development at 1841-1845 Broadway.
