Construction has topped out on 1841 Broadway, a 25-story residential tower on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by INC Architecture & Design with SLCE Architects as the architect of record and developed by Global Holdings Management Group, the 281-foot-tall structure will yield 180,813 square feet with 173 market-rate and affordable housing units, as well as 11,741 square feet of commercial retail space on the first two levels. Pavarini McGovern is the general contractor and DeSimone Consulting Engineers is the façade consultant for the property, which is located at the corner of Broadway and West 60th Street, just north of Columbus Circle and the southwest corner of Central Park.
The reinforced concrete superstructure rose quickly since our last update in mid-May, when the building had just passed the halfway mark. Installation of the dark brick façade has also progressed steadily since then, and now encloses the entirety of the podium.
Wooden form work and metal scaffolding were spotted holding up the last section of the building along the northwestern end of the stack of floor plates. This stepped massing can only be seen from afar, such as the southern end of Columbus Circle, and could likely be home to a private rooftop terrace that overlooks the surrounding neighborhood.
The brickwork features a subtle sheen, and its craftsmanship is most evident at the rounded southern corner of the multi-story podium. This portion of 1841 Broadway was previously covered behind black netting and scaffolding in our last update. The windows should be put into place sometime later this summer, followed by the start of interior work by the end of the year.
1841 Broadway is slated for completion in the fall of 2023, as noted on the construction board.
