Location: Manhattan, USA
Architect: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLC
The future 318-foot-tall, 200,000-square-foot NoMad project will be a 22-story commercial office building with ground-floor retail space. Inspired by Manhattan’s classical 19th and 20th century architecture, yet asserting a distinctly contemporary presence, 1245 Broadway by globally renowned architectural firm SOM is both contextual and unique. The neutral tone of the poured-in-place concrete recalls a traditional stone façade while massive punched windows bring light and views that appeal to today’s most sophisticated tenants.
The structure will feature a curtain wall composed of architecturally finished concrete panels between floor-to-ceiling windows with triple-insulated glass.
Eco-conscious design and construction features enhance comfort, optimize energy efficiency, and contribute to a more sustainable corporate environment. Large terraces positioned on the building’s multiple setbacks will provide workers with access to fresh air, light, and views of the surrounding neighborhood. A private tenant amenity lounge with skylights, private phone booths, communal work areas, a fireplace, and a beverage station will also be included. The developers are aiming for LEED-silver certification.
