YIMBY has covered plans for a new office building at 1241 Broadway extensively over the past few weeks, first reporting on the applications and initial rendering, and then checking in on site progress. Today, we can reveal the updated current design thanks to developer Michael Kirchmann of GDSNY, who also told us all about the project and its burgeoning surrounds in an interview ahead of the groundbreaking ceremony, scheduled for this morning. Sweden-based Klovern is also behind the plans.
Updated proposals for the renovation and redesign of 550 Madison Avenue contain exciting new details on Snøhetta’s vision for the landmarked structure.

The documents will go before the LPC for review later today.
The South Bronx is undergoing a major urban transformation as developers are continuing to reshape the area with a mix of adaptive-reuse buildings and new residential construction. Union Crossing is a new mixed-use project that will combine contemporary commercial office space and retail opportunities for newcomers to the historic neighborhood. It is designed by Woods Bagot, while the developers include Madison Realty Capital, The Altmark Group, The Bluestone Group, and Galil Management. JRT Realty is the exclusive leasing agent for the venture.
In a recent reveal, The Hudson Companies released updated renderings of a new, mixed-use residential project on the rise at 350 Clarkson Avenue in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. Designed by CetraRuddy Architecture, the building’s 227,000 square feet will comprise 250 market-rate rentals, office space, ground floor retail, and a potential community facility.
Sitting on a corner lot at the southwest intersection of Broadway and West 31st Street on the bleeding northern edge of NoMad, 1241 Broadway is slated to become one of Midtown South’s newest office buildings. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill, the impending 22-story and 318-foot-tall commercial office tower is being developed by GDS Development and Sweden-based Klovern. With renderings revealed and permits filed, YIMBY stopped by the old parking lot to check on progress. The site has already been vacated and cleared, while the original steel signage for the parking still remains standing above the sidewalk. Triton Construction will be in charge of building the 170,000 square foot project. Their name, along with GDSNY, are displayed on the black fence that currently surrounds the lot.
