Smile NEW YORK | 55 Broad Street | 742 Ft | 53 FLOORS

http://therealdeal.com/blog/2014/03/...reet-overhaul/

Rudin weighs wide array of changes at 55 Broad Street
Proposed mixed-use tower would rise 742 feet


Mark Maurer
March 04, 2014



Quote:
Bill Rudin, CEO of Rudin Management, hired architecture firm FXFOWLE to gauge the viability of full-on redeveloping of 55 Broad Street in Lower Manhattan.

Tentative plans call for constructing a 53-story mixed-use property in place of the 35-story office building there now. The site would grow to nearly double the height – 742 feet from 402 feet. In addition to the office component, there would be luxury apartments and retail space.

Bill’s father, Lew Rudin, developed the property in the 1960s as Goldman Sachs’ headquarters. Investment banking firm Drexel Burnham Lambert then occupied it until going bankrupt in 1990. The building was subsequently vacant for five years, the New York Post reported.

Starbucks bumped its up ground-floor lease by 1,000 square feet last year, as previously reported

Developer wants to bring modernity to Broad Street tower

By Lois Weiss
March 3, 2014


Quote:
Developer Bill Rudin is plotting the redevelopment of 55 Broad St. into a new, modern mixed-use tower, The Post has learned.

Prompted by the diversification of downtown and a residential population beginning to pay top dollar for apartments, sources say the third-generation developer has already hired FXFOWLE to research the feasibility of redeveloping the current 35-story, 402-feet-tall office structure into a 53-story, 742 feet-tall mixed-use building.

....Prompted by the diversification of downtown and a residential population beginning to pay top dollar for apartments, sources say the third-generation developer has already hired FXFOWLE to research the feasibility of redeveloping the current 35-story, 402-feet-tall office structure into a 53-story, 742 feet-tall mixed-use building.

Such a building could include retail, technology-focused office space and ritzy apartments in an energy-efficient tower designed for the prominent site on the northeast corner of Broad and Beaver streets.

Coincidently, Cushman & Wakefield is marketing 45 Broad, the adjacent stalled site to its north, where Robert De Niro once planned a hotel. That site can host a tall but slender tower with views to the Statue of Liberty because there are no height restrictions in the area.

But it is entirely possible that Rudin is planning a tower play and will be bidding with an eye on winning that site and incorporating its 264,200 square feet into Rudin Management’s 55 Broad, so he can add a new majestic skyscraper to the downtown skyline.

Who knows what will happen here...I'll let my imagination play with it for a while.

I've always loved the density of lower Manhattan, the small, closeness of the streets.

Whatever design they come up with, it had better make that Beaver "thing" look a helluvalot less like the horrid accident that it's turned out to be.

The developer would be crazy not to combine both parcels, so much can be done on this site, especially considering the location. That part of downtown needs an alpha tower to counter the WTC on the west side.

I so agree with you. Nothing says Gotham more than downtown manhattan, it just has more of a New York feel than midtown. I hope a new tower will rise down there and reclaim the skyline the way that fraud (1WTC) couldn't.

The streets of Midtown, with its grid, have a unique aspect of New York as well. The randomness of the streets in the financial district offer more of a mystery, you never know what skyscraper is lurking "just around the bend". You become more intimate with the skyscrapers. Used to love it on weekends when no on else was around, but things have been changing rapidly.

It would make sense for them to go as high as possible, with the recent and coming residential towers, especially the conversions. I would love to have something tall enough to add a little balance to the lower Manhattan skyline, but we may be getting to far ahead of ourselves. Still, it would be nice to see Downtown answer the residential supertalls of Midtown.

I have heard the saying that the real New York is south of Houston St. from people who live their. Midtown is nice but Lower Manhattan has more of a historical feeling to it. Either way, I love both.

I've been to the Starbucks in 55 Broad a few times while visiting the area. The adjacent empty lot is quite the eyesore and I'd love to see it combined with this site.

Usually what people meant by that was the lack of a "touristy" feel Downtown, although that is hard to distinguish these days. This area of lower Manhattan, south of Wall Street is the original New York (or New Amsterdam if you like).

But what you should know is there are millions of people, from Brooklyn to Queens, and even the Bronx, who will tell you that the real New York is not in Manhattan at all, and I tend to agree with those people, having lived in 4 of the 5 boroughs. Manhattan may be the heart, but the soul of the city is in its outer boroughs, where the vast majority of the more than 8 million live real lives. One of the things about living in Manhattan is that you don't get the complete New York experience - you can live your whole life there, and not have to spend any reasonable amount of time in the other boroughs. If you live in the boroughs, you will have to come into the "city" at some point - via bridge, subway, tunnel, or ferry.

Anyway, as the original heart of the city, this area of lower Manhattan has a tradition of new life being breathed in with the old, even going back to the days of the WTC and Chase. As dense as it is, there always seems to be new construction going on, these days more than ever. I'm really looking forward to what happens here. The best thing for me would be a completely new tower rising up on this part of the skyline to join the classics.

If they do decide to go with a taller tower here, I would prefer something modern with a classic element...

Same. I would prefer limestone here so it will peak in the skyline with nearby prewar beauties.

Off topic but what is the name of that vile yellow/brown building? Ugh needs to go ASAP!!!

The William Beaver tower. It's new though, so it's not going anytime soon.

Thank you. A glass box would have been nice.

New York YIMBY:

Revealed: 55 Broad Street
BY: NIKOLAI FEDAK ON MARCH 11TH 2014 AT 6:00 AM


55 Broad Street — image by FX Fowle

Quote:
Several details regarding a potential tower at 55 Broad Street were discussed by Lois Weiss at the New York Post last month, and now YIMBY has the first vague renderings of the tower, courtesy of an anonymous tipper. Rudin Management is developing the site, and FX Fowle is the architect of record.

The site is located in the heart of the Financial District, and has development rights of 388,000 square feet; the massing diagram depicts a 53-story tower that would stand nearly 750 feet, which would make it one of the tallest skyscrapers in Lower Manhattan. The William Beaver House — which stands 527 feet — is rendered adjacent to 55 Broad Street in the massing study.

While 55 Broad Street could rise over 50 stories as-is, the lot has additional potential, thanks to the failure of the initial plans for the Nobu Tower, at 45 Broad Street. The two sites could potentially be combined, and the resulting tower’s air rights would total approximately 650,000 square feet, and an assemblage of that size could rise significantly taller than the current plans.
....

No completion date for the site has been announced, and given the existing 35-story office building must be demolished before work proceeds, construction is a long ways off; still, the potential is there, and demolition of the current 55 Broad Street appears to be imminent.

Let's hope they move in that direction. While 750 ft isn't bad, it won't really stand out in that location.

Potential news (maybe) from that Real Deal piece...


http://therealdeal.com/blog/2014/11/...ld-fetch-110m/

45 Broad to return to market — and could fetch $110M

November 10, 2014
By Adam Pincus


Quote:
A Lower Manhattan development parcel once owned by Kent Swig will return to the market next year and could sell for as much as $110 million, insiders said.

The potential price for the vacant parcel at 45 Broad Street between Beaver Street and Exchange Place, which has 264,200 square feet of development rights, shows the enormous rise in values in the current environment compared with the prior boom.

Sources pointed to active players in the Downtown market as potential bidders, including Rudin Mangement, which owns 55 Broad Street, a large site adjacent to 45 Broad. The two sites could potentially be combined to build a 650,000-square-foot tower.

Other possible buyers include David Lichtenstein’s Lightstone Group, Michael Shvo, Michael Stern’s JDS Development Group, Fortis Property Group, Howard Hughes and Albanese, according to people familiar with the Downtown market.

Funny thing is, it's shape and materials are acceptably bad. If they would just paint the yellow black like the rest of the building, the building would look more innocuous on the skyline and less diseased.
