Next up in our Turkey Week tour of stalled projects is 45 Broad Street, a 1,115-foot-tall residential skyscraper planned to become the tallest such structure in the Financial District. Designed by CetraRuddy and developed by Madison Equities and Gemdale Properties, the slender tower is most notable for its Art Deco-style appointments and sloped ornamental crown. Pizzarotti was formerly involved in the development of the project. It was announced earlier this year that 45 Broad Street will also have a slight height reduction of 80 feet to meet Federal Aviation Administration guidelines, according to the city’s Department of Buildings.
