Façade installation is progressing on 2330 Broadway, an 18-story residential building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Welltower and Hines, the 109,315-square-foot structure will yield 162 units averaging 674 square feet, with half reserved for seniors with memory and cognitive disorders. The property will also offer supportive programming with a focus on memory care. Hunter Robert Construction Group is the general contractor for the project, which is located at the corner of Broadway and West 85th Street.
At the time of our last update in early January, window installation was nearing the parapet and the perimeter walls were in the process of being built out. Since then, the red brick exterior has covered most of the main western elevation facing Broadway, the slender northern side along West 85th Street, and the rear eastern side. The construction elevator has also been dismantled, leaving a gap of windows to be filled in.
Scaffolding rigs are positioned at several spots along the exterior as the brickwork makes its way toward the parapet.
Portions of the brick envelope have a very subtle striped pattern around the main setback at the midpoint of the building.
The below photo shows the detail in the brick assembly above the ground floor. The first level is still largely exposed, and will likely be the final section to complete construction.
YIMBY previously reported that the double-height amenity spaces will include a spa, a homeopathic care center, a bistro for residents, and a rooftop garden. A mechanical bulkhead tucked behind a metal framework will sit on the eastern edge of the pinnacle and will hardly be visible from street level.
2330 Broadway is expected to be completed between the end of the year and the early months of 2023.
