Façade work is continuing on 1841 Broadway, a 25-story residential tower on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by INC Architecture & Design with SLCE Architects as the architect of record and developed by Global Holdings Management Group, the 281-foot-tall structure will span 180,813 square feet and yield 173 market-rate and affordable housing units and 11,741 square feet of retail space on the first two levels. Pavarini McGovern is the general contractor and DeSimone Consulting Engineers is the façade consultant for the property, which is located at the corner of Broadway and West 60th Street, just north of Columbus Circle and the southwest corner of Central Park.
The charcoal-hued brick façade has finished enclosing the curved horizontal floor plate edges up to the parapet since our last update in late October. Window installation is now following behind, with the upper floors of the podium enclosed in glass and corrugated metal panels. Temporary white plastic sheets cover several portions of the exposed upper half.
The below photo highlights the difference in scale between 1841 Broadway and the adjacent Deutsche Bank Center (formerly Time Warner Center) as seen from across Columbus Circle.
Residents at 1841 Broadway with south- and east-facing arrangements will have panoramic views of Central Park, Columbus Circle, and the Billionaires’ Row skyline. The development is located steps away from the entrance to the 1 train station along Broadway, which offers a connection to the full 59th Street-Columbus Circle station serviced by the A, B, C, and D trains. Next door to the south is the Deutsche Bank Center and The Shops at Columbus Circle, which features a subterranean Whole Foods Market and a host of shopping and dining establishments spread across four floors of retail space.
1841 Broadway is slated for completion in the fall, as noted on the construction board.
