45 Broad Street is a skyscraper under construction in the Financial District of Manhattan, New York, U.S.[2] The building will be entirely residential, and is being developed by Madison Equities on Broad Street.

History and construction[edit]

A proposal dating to 2008 planned a Nobu Hotel for the site, which was backed by Robert De Niro. The building, a conventional glass curtain wall, would have contained a retail base, 128 hotel rooms, and 77 "super-luxury" condominiums above the hotel.[3] The planned Nobu Hotel would have been 62 stories and 709 feet in height, but the proposal was derailed due to the Great Recession.[4]

In 2014, the parcel was placed on the market, and Madison Equities finalized their acquisition of the land in October of that year.[5] AMS Acquisitions is also an investor in the project, and the building will be constructed by firm Pizzarotti-IBC.[5]

Real estate site 6sqft released early renderings of the new plans for the site in January 2016.[6] After the release of the renderings, Pizzarotti-IBC Rance MacFarland confirmed that the new structure would be a supertall, residential skyscraper catering to "entry- and mid-level buyers".[2] More developed renderings were published by The Real Deal in February 2016.[7]

In July 2016, it was announced that Landmarks Preservation Commission had approved the construction of two new subway elevators outside the entrance to the building, available for public use. They will connect to the existing Broad Street J/Z subway station. The design of the elevators is being overseen by Urbahn Architects, although they did not design the associated building.[8]

Members of the New York real estate industry have expressed doubts that Madison will recoup costs, and the company has faced difficulty receiving funding for the project.[9] These difficulties are in part due to the site's proximity to the New York Stock Exchange and the high-level security around that building.[9]

Construction work on the foundation began in April 2017,[9] and excavation began in May of 2018.[10]

Usage and amenities[edit]

The building will be mixed-use with 245 residences and a five-story retail base. Amenities in the building will include a fitness center with a pool, an outdoor garden, and several lounges.


The building was designed by CetraRuddy who also designed One Madison.
