YIMBY recently checked in on the status of 45 Broad Street, where a CetraRuddy-designed supertall is slated to rise 1,115 feet above Lower Manhattan. The site of the Financial District project, which is being developed by Madison Equities and Pizzarotti LLC, appears primed for the beginning of construction.
45 Broad Street
Located to the south of the New York Stock Exchange on a narrow rectangular strip of land along Broad Street, the Financial District’s first residential supertall will soon rise at 45 Broad Street. The tower will eventually soar 1,115 feet above the crowded streets of Lower Manhattan, and should make a very dramatic impact on the skyline in the coming years. Clad with bronze-colored aluminum panels and an intricate mix of sleek vertical and curved lines, it is the 5th-tallest skyscraper currently under construction in New York City. CetraRuddy is the architect, while the developers are Madison Equities and Pizzarotti LLC.
The Gladstone family has a long history of construction in New York, and the family’s current venture, Madison Equities, was founded in the mid-1960’s. Now, Madison is behind what will imminently become the first actual residential supertall below 34th Street in Manhattan, with 45 Broad Street set to rise 1,127 feet to its peak. Last week, Madison Equities’ CEO Robert Gladstone sat down with YIMBY to talk about that project, as well as everything else in the firm’s pipeline for the Five Boroughs.
Construction is well underway for what will eventually become the Financial District’s tallest residential tower, a 64-story supertall at 45 Broad Street. Thanks to a reader providing an overview photograph, we can see that trucks are currently removing debris from the site, and reports indicate that concrete trucks are also moving in and out, indicating that excavation is now in full swing. Drilling for the foundational piers has already started. Pizzarotti LLC is responsible for building and developing the tower, along with Madison Equities and AMS Acquisitions.
YIMBY last reported on 45 Broad Street when workers arrived and barrier installation began back in September. Now, we have a few fresh renderings for the tower, which also depict what the inside of the open-air mechanical floors will look like. The supertall borrows the technique from 432 Park Avenue, and combined with the intricate bronze exterior, the resulting tower could be one of the most attractive additions to the Lower Manhattan skyline in several decades.
