Construction has topped out on 2551-2555 Broadway, a 22-story residential project on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by Stephen B. Jacobs Group and developed by Extell, the 276,578-square-foot structure will yield 130 units averaging 1,660 square feet apiece, as well as 9,080 square feet of commercial space. Leeding Builders Group, LLC is the general contractor and Paragon JV Prop. III, LLC is the owner of the property, which is located at the corner of Broadway and West 96th Street.
Photos show the rapid progress of the reinforced concrete superstructure since our last update in January, when construction was only a few floors above street level.
While no official rendering has been released that shows the entire edifice, the completed superstructure gives us a general idea of the massing. No façade work has commenced yet.
One of the more subtle aspects of 2551-2555 Broadway’s design is a cantilever on the southern elevation. This can be spotted from across Broadway, where steel columns and beams hold up the protruding levels.
A conceptual depiction of the site can be seen below and gives an idea of the main façade elements. These include a light-colored brick or stone surface framing large industrial-style windows, and floor-to-ceiling glass on the ground-floor frontage. The view is looking west from Broadway.
2551-2555 Broadway will be finished in the fall of 2022, as noted on the construction board.
