Demolition Progresses at 1841-1845 Broadway on Manhattan’s Upper West Side

Demolition is progressing at 1841 and 1845 Broadway on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, where a 24-story mixed-use building is planned to rise. The two adjacent properties are owned by Global Holdings Management Group, and Ancora Engineering is listed as the applicant of record on demolition permits that were filed in 2019. The site is bound by Broadway to the east and West 60th Street to the south, and sits just north of Columbus Circle and the southwestern corner entrance to Central Park.

Recent photos show 1841 Broadway reduced to about half its former height since our last update in late August. Workers are now disassembling the sixth floor behind the black netting and scaffolding covering the wide southern elevation and angled eastern profile facing Broadway. Meanwhile, 1845 Broadway now appears to be fully razed. At this pace, the entire demolition should be complete by early spring, with excavation, foundations, and the start of construction possibly commencing sometime in the second half of the year.

The 97-year-old 1841 Broadway formerly stood 12 stories with 114,022 square feet of space, while the 111-year-old 1845 Broadway was a smaller four-story commercial building that spanned just 15,068 square feet. The two properties sit between the Time Warner Center and Trump International Hotel & Tower, directly across from the 59th Street-Columbus Circle subway station, which is serviced by A, B, C, D, and 1 trains. The new superstructure will stand roughly twice as tall as 1841 Broadway’s original height and provide views of Central Park, Billionaires’ Row, and Columbus Circle.

No renderings, construction timelines, or completion date have been revealed for the project.

    Thanks for your report, you spoke about the new progress; I don’t have any questions: Hello New York YIMBY.

    • David, I wish I understood anything you write on this website. Most of your comments are complete gibberish and make no sense. I would rather the 1000’s of people comment “send me an application” than read anything you try to put into words.

      • I think your comment is rude, but I am approving it because I disagree with it entirely and I actually think David’s comments are quite poetic, after scrutiny…!

        1845 Broadway was the former home of a memorable and great dance studio called “Paul Pellicoro’s DanceSport”. It was a wonderful place, where everyone from students to the best professional dancers frequented. A studio where you not only learned to dance, it was where lasting friendships and relationships were born, classes and socials enjoyed, and although the building is gone, the dear memories will last a lifetime and or won’t soon be forgotten. Clearly this new building, won’t have affordable space for a dance studio. Too bad for us dancers. ?

  2. Formerly home of my favorite curry house, Sapphire (now at 2014 Broadway and closed due to covid). This should be a hot property given the location and views. If my numbers hit (lol) I’ll be first in line for the penthouse!

  3. I can’t wait to see what this site will bring.

  4. Looks like a unique triangular lot…hope the new structure respects it.

  5. Very smart to withhold renders and information what with the militant nimbys in the area.
