My thoughts exactly! Gladstone is one of, if not THE most litigious developers in NYC. I couldn't imagine him wanting to move forward with Pizzarotti given the work they did at One Seaport!

Downtown just can't catch a break.

So apparently I'm finding out that there was some bs reporting going on and that there is no official proof that the tower will be shorter. Possibly a reporting error for the media.

This tower is indeed on hold, but the height being lower once it resumes construction looks like it might be bs. The FAA expiration on a side note is coming up this June in 2020, so well see if they will reapply for a renewed permit by that time. 1035 ft figure is very questionable.

Oh it was "Tower Fifth". The Macklowe tower.

I checked the 45 Broad updates, and nothing. Last update was in November 2019.

Tried to dig up any relevant info, but nothing at the moment. No luck with the phone number either for 45 Broad Updates (goes to voicemail) - | (707) 732-4518.

Still on-hold per CTBUH. No recent filings per NY DOB.

wow wonder what that means they're doing here

That sounds like good news? :shrug:

Figures, this starting any time soon seems too good to be true

Once the ultra-luxury sector has more life in it, this will rise. Risk management per say from the developer. We just gotta wait, thats all. Plenty to handle at the moment.

No updates via the 45 Broad resource as of today.

^ Nice. It’ll be a while before we see this, but worth the wait.

If this is what gets built, and it isn't watered down, I'll be amazed and joyous. This is what a timeless design is, this will resist feeling dated

45 Broad Street Supertall Remains On Hold In Financial District


Next up in our Turkey Week tour of stalled projects is 45 Broad Street, a 1,115-foot-tall residential skyscraper planned to become the tallest such structure in the Financial District. Designed by CetraRuddy and developed by Madison Equities and Gemdale Properties, the slender tower is most notable for its Art Deco-style appointments and sloped ornamental crown. Pizzarotti was formerly involved in the development of the project. It was announced earlier this year that 45 Broad Street will also have a slight height reduction of 80 feet to meet Federal Aviation Administration guidelines, according to the city’s Department of Buildings.

All previous construction equipment that was once on site has been removed. The only notable remnant of work that is still present is a row of steel rebar as part of the pilings lining the southern perimeter on the narrow plot. They remain inserted and running parallel with multiple pieces of insulation boards lined up against the blank abutting wall, and mostly buried beneath dirt that hasn’t been excavated. The site sits behind a green construction fence and metal gate along Broad Street, where the sidewalk has been cleared of construction barriers and opened to pedestrians again.

Construction on 45 Broad Street initially started in September 2017, but has encountered financial challenges in addition to an oversaturated real estate market. Nonetheless, if the project is eventually built as designed, its elegant combination of sleek bronze and glass panels will make for a bold addition to the Lower Manhattan skyline. With its modern take on classic architectural themes, it would add nicely to the collection of historic Financial District towers including 40 Wall Street, 70 Pine Street, and 20 Exchange Place.

Its been a while... so I checked the official 45 broad update... and none... none at all. Or at least nothing worth screaming to wake up the neighbors in a manic frenzy as you speak in tongues to the mighty skyscraper gods (Barnett and Stern with their apostles, Shop Architects) and sacrifice your cat as a bloodlust offering.... none of that... but... there's this;

Last update covered; WEEKS OF 11/22 + 11/29 + 12/6

" We will be coordinating foundation work with contractor, subcontractor and design professionals. There will be no active construction work during this period. "

Same jargon used a year ago.

Eh... worth checking every few months. I sent an email to the 45 Broad team a few months ago, and nothing from them. So either they are dead or somewhere in the spam folder, next to the testosterone pill ad.

Don't expect anything to be happening on the site for a while.

I sure don't, but as long as something does happen in the next couple years I'll be happy.

Does this thing still have a chance?

chris08876 Dec 14, 2020 11:49 PM

Once market conditions improve.

I read in either the NY Times or WSJ that this project has been canceled. Can anyone confirm?

All times are GMT. The time now is 7:41 AM.
