1162 Broadway’s Façade Begins to Emerge from Scaffolding in NoMad, Manhattan

Exterior work is getting closer to completion on 1162 Broadway, a 13-story commercial building in the Madison Square North Historic District of NoMad, Manhattan. Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by 1162 Broadway LLC, the 185-foot-tall structure will yield Class A office space and 1,800 square feet for a restaurant on the ground floor and cellar level. On Star Management is the general contractor for the property, which is located between West 27th and 28th Streets.

The assembly of scaffolding and construction netting has begun disassembly since our last update in early April, revealing the look of the façade on the main western elevation facing Broadway. This face features dark gray metal paneling framing floor-to-ceiling windows in a modern take on cast iron aesthetics, and extends around the sides of the structure with a diagonal taper as the building rises. The northern and southern sides are left blank and enclosed in beige brick paneling. Two wooden water towers are perched atop the flat parapet on the edge of the southern elevation.

The lower levels of 1162 Broadway remain covered in scaffolding, though the rendering below depicts a small metal canopy hanging over the main entrance.

The nearest subways from the property are the R and W trains at the 28th Street station to the north. Madison Square Park is a short walk away to the south and Herald Square is located further north along Broadway.

YIMBY expects 1162 Broadway to finish construction sometime before the end of this year.

  1. Better than the rendering!

    The recessed windows and heavily detailed metal surround with cornice are exceptionally well done. The two-tone brick sidewalls are better than most lot line walls. But the angled, peeled back wall just doesn’t quite work. Maybe a recessed reveal between the brick and metal cladding would help, but the intent ends up just being unsettling.

  3. Very handsome.

  4. It tool a couple of views to realize the front facade WASN’T tilting towards the sidewalk, but an optical illusion!🤔

  5. There is only one wall of windows. It will be so dark in there.

  6. Fantastic facade-work.

    How much Class A office space will this building have? Having the retail size is nice, but details on the total size and/or office SF are scant.

  8. Hope the red corner building next door gets torn down, that facade is so ugly and outdated compared to this one

    Hope me and my wife get the apartment. Thank you very much

  10. This is such a pleasant surprise! I love the dark metal facade, and the brickwork on the sides is a nice touch.
