GLASSY CHASSIS: The Nobu tower will rise
at 45 Broad St.

May 8, 2008 -- Here is a first look at the planned Nobu Hotel and Residences in the Financial District, which will rise in a 62-story glass tower at 45 Broad St.

Kent Swig of Swig Equities has announced that the nearly 650-foot structure will include 77 "super-luxury" condos on floors 41 through 62, as well as a 128-room hotel and approximately 13,000 square feet of retail space on the ground level and second floor. There will be a Nobu restaurant on the third floor.

David Rockwell and the Rockwell Group have designed the interior, while the firm of Moed de Armas & Shannon designed the glass exterior with oblique curves. There will be a six-story base with a transparent glass facade.

The eco-friendly building will include a health club and spa, open to both residents and hotel guests, with an indoor pool and outdoor sun terrace.

Partners in the project include Robert De Niro, Nobu Matsuhisa, Richie Notar and Meir Teper. Drew Nieporent is also a partner in the restaurant.
