    Default Proposed Nobu Hotel and Residences - 45 Broad St (62 Storeys) - by Moed de Armas

    Swig Equities are demolishing what was a nice building at 45 Broad. Does anyone know what will rise there?

    DOB says this for 43 - 47 Broad Street -- PERMIT issued 3.21.07 ...

    INSTALLATION OF HEAVY DUTY SCAFFOLD 60 FEET LONG AND 80 FEET HIGH DURING FACADE REPAIR. SHED FILED SEPARATELY. NO CHANGE IN USE, EGRESS OR OCCUPANCY.

    However there is also a DEMO PERMIT for a Fence to be installed (Issued 3.21.07).


    And another PERMIT issued 3.21.07 for this:

    No NEW BUILDING Application has been filed for this site.

    I saw that, but the building that was there is gone and only a pile of rubbish remains.

    This site has a FAR of 15 and zoned C5-5 (the same as the William-Beaver condo). The lot area is 8365.

    I hope they're not doing condos.

    So a pretty tall tower can go there. It's a much smaller site than the Beaver's big hole.

    Interesting bit of history regarding a mural that was inside 45 Broad Street, formerly the site of the American Bureau of Shipping (mural removed and moved to Texas):

    Yeah, the lot size is about 1/3 of WB's.

    So if they can build as much space as Beaver on a much smaller lot, this building could be pretty tall (e.g., 700-800 feet).

    What a coincidence! After watching the demolition for the last weeks (and having to listen to the pre-demo jackhammering for weeks beforehand), i finally decided to look up the address and permits on the dob site today, came to the forum to make sure nothing was posted on the topic yet and whadda ya know - you guys are already on the case.

    Will keep a close eye on this one. buildings rising all around. very exciting.

    It won't have as much space as WB because of the fact that it's on a smaller lot.

    My guess is that it will be in the 20-30 floor range.

    Thanks. It sucks that they razed the nice old building there particularly since a Macklowe-esque box likely will rise there.

    ^ Ya better believe it!

    No one does glass boxes better (or more of them) than this city.

    But Macklowe's are particularly cheap and heinous. For example, the new condo on 74th and 2nd is way better than Macklowe's new tower on 53rd and Madison despite the fact that the former location is not nearly as prime as the latter.
