Construction on TSX Broadway has reached a significant milestone with the completion of the historic Palace Theatre’s lift to its new position 30 feet above street level within the podium of the 47-story Times Square hotel tower. The engineering challenge was overseen by Urban Foundation and Engineering and used a system of 34 hydraulic jacks to hoist the 14-million-pound venue at a speed of about a quarter of an inch per hour over the span of four months. Work will now commence on PBDW Architects‘ restoration of the theater, whose new elevated position will make way for 100,000 square feet of retail space at the base of the structure.

YIMBY went on a tour of TSX Broadway, a 46-story hotel that topped out last week at 1568 Broadway in Times Square. Designed by Perkins Eastman and Mancini Duffy and developed by L&L Holding Company and Fortress Investment Group, the 470-foot-tall tower will yield 550,000 square feet with a 669-key hotel, retail space, restaurants, and a cantilevering outdoor performance stage that overlooks Times Square. The property is also home to the historic Palace Theatre, which will soon be raised by Urban Foundation and Engineering. PBDW Architects is restoring the interior of the theatre, and Pavarini McGovern is the general contractor for 1568 Broadway, which is located at the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 47th Street. The project is expected to cost around $2.5 billion.
