Exterior work is nearing completion 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 structure will yield 180,000 square feet of commercial space marketed by JLL. The corner lot is located at the intersection of Broadway and East 11th Street, and was purchased by Normandy Real Estate Partners and Ares Management in 2016 for $101 million.
Recent photos show the curtain wall progress since our last update in October, when the floor-to-ceiling glass and white paneling was just beginning to be installed on the reinforced concrete superstructure. Now the façade covers nearly the entire building.
The building’s dynamic design is best expressed on the eastern elevation facing Broadway, with the staggered levels making way for multiple outdoor landscaped terraces. The longer northern side that runs along East 11th Street has a more conventional tiered approach with the curtain wall uniformly stretching the length of the block.
Workers were seen suspended on scaffolding rigs putting together glass panels against the largely opaque gray southern profile.
799 Broadway is one of the newest office buildings along this section of Broadway in Greenwich Village. The envelope greatly contrasts with the more traditional brick and stone masonry clad low-rise neighbors. The address is conveniently serviced by the nearby 14th Street-Union Square station, with access to the 4, 5, 6, L, N, Q, R, and W trains.
Additional renderings below show the building above at dusk, and offer a preview of the lobby and communal areas.
YIMBY estimates 799 Broadway to be finished sometime before the end of the year.
