In July, it was
revealed
that developer SL Green Realty Corp. was planning to
build a residential tower in the Financial District, at 185
Broadway, that could rise 35 stories and house as many as 279
apartments. More concrete details have now surfaced, along with a
rendering of what the FX Collaborative-designed building will look
like.

Instead of 35 stories, the mixed-use building will stand 31
stories with two floors of flagship retail space (it’s unknown
who the tenant will be) and three levels of commercial space. There
will be around 209 rentals, 70 less than what was originally
anticipated, and those units will range in size from studios to
three-bedrooms. Thirty percent of the units (around 63 apartments)
will be offered as affordable housing. The building’s amenities
are slated to include a laundry room, a health club, and a pet
grooming center.

SL Green has acquired 66,186 zoning square feet of development
rights from the owner of the adjacent lot at 189 Broadway. This
will allow for light and air easement, giving developers the right
to cantilever over 189 Broadway. Three parcels at 183 Broadway, 187
Broadway, and 5-7 Dey Street have been demolished and foundation
work at 189 Broadway is expected to wrap up by the end of the
year.
