Construction is climbing at 799 Broadway, a 12-story, 182-foot-tall building at the corner of Broadway and East 11th Street in Greenwich Village. Designed by Perkins + Will and developed by Columbia Property Trust, the project recently reached the halfway mark and will contain around 180,00 square feet of office space marketed by Cushman & Wakefield.
Photos from across the street show the pace of progress since construction reached street level back in early December. The sixth floor is being formed with crews putting together the formwork for the columns and floor slabs. 799 Broadway sits directly across the street from Grace Church, though the height will not surpass the historic 230-foot-tall spire.
The angled cuts in the floor plates in the centerline of the Broadway elevation are now visible.
It looks like the height of the office floors is somewhere between 12 to 15 feet.
The corner lot for 799 Broadway was purchased by Normandy Real Estate Partners and Ares Management in 2016 for $101 million. The building will feature a series of stacked and interlocking volumes clad in glass that gradually set back from the sidewalk, an aesthetic that will certainly make it stand out from the more traditional surrounding architecture. The closest subways are the 4, 5, 6, L, N, Q, R, and W trains to the north at 14th Street-Union Square.

YIMBY learned that 799 Broadway is slated to finish and open later this year.
