Facade installation is progressing at 2551-2555 Broadway, a 22-story residential building on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Designed by Stephen B. Jacobs Group and developed by Extell, the 276,578 square foot structure will produce 130 residential units averaging 1,660 square feet each, as well as 9,080 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. . Leeding Builders Group, LLC is the general contractor, RC Structures Inc. is the concrete contractor, and Paragon JV Prop. III, LLC is the owner of the property, which is under construction at the corner of Broadway and West 96th Street, adjacent to the 96 Street station serving trains 1, 2 and 3.
Since our last update in September, the stone and glass exterior has steadily risen to the reinforced concrete superstructure with some parts now reaching the parapet of the flat roof.
An assembly of black nets and metal scaffolding was constructed in front of part of the upper floors of the building.
The blue plastic film on the glass will eventually peel off. Almost all of the curtain wall sections on the main east side and the north wall are in a modular rectangular shape.
The southern profile has more square-shaped floor-to-ceiling windows on the upper floors and a few vertical stacks of thin, narrow windows on the lower half of the structure.
Just below is the cantilevered part of the superstructure on the lower part of the south elevation. This has been wrapped in light-colored panels that follow the diagonal slope of the protruding steel segments.
There are still no full exterior or interior renderings for 2551-2555 Broadway, although what we can observe from street level right now gives us a general idea of ââthe final product. The ground floor commercial facade will eventually be revealed once the wraparound sidewalk scaffolding is lowered.
2551 to 2555 Broadway will be completed in the fall of 2022, as indicated on the construction sign.
