Smile NEW YORK | 555 Broadway | FT | 27 FLOORS (270k+ sqft)

Blesso opts for ground-up 27-story project on W’burg bank site



Quote:
Blesso Properties filed plans for a new, 280,200-square-foot mixed-use building on the site of a former Lincoln Savings Bank branch in South Williamsburg, according to plans filed with the city’s Department of Buildings on Tuesday.

The developer appears to have scrapped its earlier plans for a conversion of the existing building.

The new 27-story building will rise at 555 Broadway near the J/M/Z South Williamsburg station. The proposed building, which extends along Broadway to Boerum Street, will house 226 residential units across 151,695 square feet of residential space, 126,410 square feet of commercial space and a 2,109-square-foot community facility.

The Garrison Architects-designed building will have offices on the second through seventh floors, five to twelve apartments on the upper floors, a rooftop terrace and parking.

Blesso TRData LogoTINY had previously filed alteration plans for an office-to-residential conversion of the 10-story building in October 2015. Those plans were not approved, and Blesso filed to amend them. The conversion would have made use of 98,000 of the lot’s 190,000 buildable square feet.
Blesso purchased the development site at 525-545 Broadway for $33 million in August 2015. Demolition plans for the existing four-story building have not been filed.

something is wrong; the quoted article is describing Williamsburg in Brooklyn, but the map is showing Broadway in Soho, which would be very out of character with the classic cast iron buildings.

First Renderings of 545 Broadway, East Williamsburg's Future Tallest Building + Reimagined Banking Hall





Quote:
The proposed 27-story, 298-foot-tall structure will hold offices along lower floors and 218 rentals above, according to submitted floor schedule. Per a program rendering posted on the site's construction fence, the tower will rise closer to Lorimer Street away from the ruckus of the overhead J and M train lines.

Garrison Architects are listed as the architect of record. The tower will be clad in orange-colored panels that somewhat complements the brick of Lincoln Savings Bank buildings. Many wondered if the bank building would be saved but it seems like the development team is committed to keeping it and will build a modern addition and roof deck above it. Renderings show the banking hall will be converted into a food hall.

Apartments will start on the seventh floor and many units will have beautiful views of the Manhattan skyline. Amenities are to include parking, many common and private residential terraces, a fitness center and a roof deck. Blesson says there will be more than 80 SF of open space per resident and go on to say, "All amenities have been designed and curated to holistically foster community interaction, support health, and well-being, cultivate sustainable living practices, as well as play host to a broad range of site-specific, programming created to bring residents, visitors together to live, work and play."

You have the wrong Broadway — It's Broadway in Brooklyn
