YIMBY spotted a couple of never before seen renderings for 267 Broadway, a 510-foot-tall mixed-use building proposed to be constructed in Tribeca. While previous iterations by Gene Kaufman Architect were last seen and revealed in February of 2018, the architecture firm reached out to say that they are no longer working on the project. As of now, The Roe Corporation was last heard to be the developer for the 42-story development. If built according to formerly announced plans, there would be 144,244 square feet of space and feature 37 residential units above an 80-room boutique hotel. The site is located between Chambers Street and Warren Street and is currently occupied by a five-story building.
The renderings illustrate and showcase the full height of the edifice with its thin profile facing Broadway, and its low-rise podium and vertical façade elements. The glass and stone tower sets back from the street and rises to a tall section around the midway point featuring glass cladding and narrow, round columns. This is likely the 15th floor amenity space for residents, which would feature a fitness center, a spa, and outdoor space. The southern elevation incorporates a number of balconies that face the Lower Manhattan skyline. Above the last setback is an angled glass cube that slightly cantilevers over the edges of the building. The back side of the structure facing west is where we assume the elevators, mechanical shafts, and egress staircases will be located.
The second close-up rendering shows the upper part of 267 Broadway where the glass cube is placed. A spiraling staircase with a circular cutout in the floor can be spotted, likely part of the slated three-story penthouse. One remarkable aspect about the location of the project is that anyone facing east toward City Hall will have views aligned almost perfectly with the roadway of the Brooklyn Bridge.
38,139 square feet of hotel space between floors three and 12 and 92,671 square feet of residential area were last heard to be housed within the skyscraper.
The status of 267 Broadway remains uncertain at the moment and if demolition and construction will one day move forward.
