A new hero shot has been revealed for 809 Broadway, a 15-story mixed-use tower rising in Greenwich Village, Manhattan. Construction has topped out, and façade installation is underway, meaning completion by the end of year is likely. The structure is just a few blocks away from Union Square, the fourth busiest subway station in New York in 2017, serviced by the 4, 5, 6, N, Q, R, W, and L trains. IDM Capital is responsible for the development, which hopes to satisfy the demands of the City’s expanding Silicon Alley.
ODA Architects is responsible for the design. The unusual floor plates inside result in a seemingly random cantilevering on the upper floors, but this unique design element is done to protect the lower floor terraces from the elements. The black metal façade should prove a chic addition to the surrounds.
The 200-foot tall structure will yield 41,000 square feet within, with 30,000 square feet dedicated to commercial retail and office space, 3,100 square feet dedicated to residencies, and 17 square feet dedicated to the smallest community facility this writer has ever seen for a development. The facility will be in the cellar, and the specifics of its use are not specified.
Retail will occupy parts of the cellar and ground floor. Offices will be included from the second to twelfth floors, with apartments above. Three condominiums will be created, averaging 1,033 square feet apiece.
