Preparation for the demolition of 1568 Broadway is continuing to gear up as scaffolding and construction netting now shroud almost the entire 46-story Times Square tower. The 29-year old structure served as a DoubleTree hotel and will be replaced by a new hotel, with tenants yet to be announced. The proposed 550,000-square-foot development is called TSX Broadway and will preserve and lift the 106-year-old Palace Theatre three stories above the ground floor to make way for new retail space. The $2.5 billion project is being developed by L&L Holding Company, Maefield Development, and Fortress Investment Group.
