Construction is fully complete on The Park Loggia, a 416-foot-tall residential building at 15 West 61st Street on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Formerly addressed as 1865 Broadway, the 33-story reinforced concrete structure is designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by AvalonBay Communities. Occupancy began last fall at the property, which is located along Broadway between West 61st Street and West 62nd Street, not far from Columbus Circle.
The latest Upper West Side tower designed by Skidmore Owings and Merrill is sealing up. It has ten months since the 33-story residential building at 1865 Broadway topped out, and just now the façade has finally reached the top.
The Upper West Side isn’t home to much new development, but that hasn’t stopped the rise of 1865 Broadway, the most substantial structure currently nearing completion in the neighborhood. Now, the 33-story residential tower is finally starting to see its SOM-designed concrete paneling installed along the lower floors, and the result is proving an increasingly attractive addition to the cityscape.
The Upper West Side is typically off-limits to developments of major substance, which is why the recent news regarding progress on new-tallest-towers for the neighborhood at 200 Amsterdam Avenue and 50 West 66th Street is particularly positive. But in between those two towers, on the corner of West 61st Street and Broadway, YIMBY has reported extensively on 1865 Broadway, a 33-story residential tower designed by Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill, which has now reached its rooftop.
Just as AvalonBay Communities wraps up its big Brooklyn tower in Downtown Brooklyn, the developer has filed new building applications for a 33-story development at 1865 Broadway, just north of Columbus Circle on the Upper West Side.
