Construction is complete on 1245 Broadway, a 23-story commercial building in NoMad. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by GDSNY and Corem, the 318-foot-tall reinforced concrete structure yields 200,000 square feet of office space with marketing and leasing handled by CBRE. StructureTech NY and Triton Construction led construction on the property, which is located at the corner of West 31st Street and Broadway, a short walk from Koreatown, Herald Square, and Madison Square Park.
Finishing touches have concluded since our last update in late January, when work was still ongoing on the ground floor. Since then, glass railings have been installed on all of the setbacks and mirrored paneling has been added to the underside of the cantilever at the northeastern corner of the building. Sidewalk scaffolding still surrounds the structure but should be removed in the coming weeks
Office amenities at 1245 Broadway include a private tenant lounge with skylights, private phone booths, a fireplace, communal work areas, and a beverage station. A 7,900-square-foot space on the ground floor is set to be occupied by a vegetarian restaurant with a brasserie-style menu from celebrity chef Matthew Kenney. The eatery will provide full-service in-office catering for tenants and take-out availability. Academy Award-winning film studio a24 signed a 15-year lease to occupy 41,000 square feet spanning four office floors.
The site is located within walking distance of a number of subways including the B, D, F, M, N, Q, R, W, and PATH trains at the 34th Street-Herald Square station and the 1, 2, 3, A, C, and E trains, the Long Island Railroad, NJ Transit, and Amtrak trains at Penn Station.
