Back in February, the first renderings were revealed of the planned 86-story, 245-unit mixed-use tower at 45 Broad Street, in the Financial District. The renderings originated from EB-5 materials, as the development team – Madison Equities, Pizzarotti-IBC, and AMS Acquisitions – is hoping to raise $75 million in financing through the program. Now, another rendering of the CetraRuddy-designed project has surfaced via YIMBY Forums, which depicts the tower when viewed from the north (looking southward down Broad Street). New buildings applications haven’t been filed yet, but the 1,100-foot-tall tower will encompass approximately 298,000 square feet. The first five floors should host 50,000 square feet of commercial space, while the apartments above should come in studio to three-bedroom layouts. There will also be 20,000 square feet of amenities. Groundbreaking is expected later this year, and completion is ambitiously scheduled for 2018.
Last month, news broke that Madison Equities and Pizzarotti-IBC are planning an 86-story, 245-unit residential tower at 45 Broad Street, in the Financial District, and now The Real Deal has the first look at the 1,100-foot building. CetraRuddy is designing the project, and the renderings are being used in EB-5 materials, which means the design is likely preliminary. The developers are seeking to raise $75 million in financing through the program. The first five floors, or roughly 50,000 square feet, will be dedicated to commercial space, and the residential units will come in studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations. The project’s 20,000 square feet of amenities will include a pool, a fitness center, an outdoor garden, and lounges with entertainment areas. New building applications and a groundbreaking are expected later this year, with completion slated for 2018. AMS Acquisitions is another partner in the project.
Back in the fall of 2015, Madison Equities and Pizzarotti-IBC closed on the purchase of the 45 Broad Street development site in the Financial District, and now Curbed reports the pair are planning an 86-story, 245-unit residential tower. The supertall – being designed by CetraRuddy – would stretch 1,100 feet into the sky, although some details are still being finalized. In addition, five floors of commercial space are planned, and future residents will have access to amenities including, but not limited to, a swimming pool, a gym, and a lounge. New building applications are expected sometime this summer, and groundbreaking is scheduled for later this fall. A tentative completion date is slated for 2018.
The Neo-Gothic high-rise at 212 Fifth Avenue has occupied a wedge-shaped plot just north of Madison Square Park since 1912. It once held furniture and garment manufacturers, who had their offices on the upper floors and massive showrooms on the lower ones. Now, Madison and Thor Equities are converting the 24-story building to condos, and they’re restoring the landmarked limestone facade and cornices in the process. YIMBY recently toured the property and got a close-up look at the restoration.
Back in August, YIMBY brought you news that Madison Equities was in contract for the development site at 45 Broad Street, in the Financial District, and now the developer has closed on the property for $86 million. Madison Equities is partnering with Pizzarotti-IBC to build a 65-story condominium tower, potentially totaling 290,000 square feet. AMS Acquisitions is also a minority investor, and Cetra/Ruddy is designing the project. Completion of the tower is tentatively scheduled by 2019.
