The Financial District tower will be the sixth tallest in NYC when its completed

The Financial District is well on its way to become the tallest neighborhood in New York City. Developers Madison Equities and Pizarotti IBC have finally filed plans with the Department of Buildings for their 1,115-foot tower at 45 Broad Street, 6sqft first reported. At that height, it'll be the city's sixth tallest building and one of over 20 supertall towers on the rise in NYC.

According to the filings, 45 Broad Street will stand 66 stories and have 150 apartments, a big jump down from the previously reported 86 stories and 245 apartments. A decrease in units usually signals that they'll be larger and more expensive, but 6sqft reports that the building will cater to entry- and mid-level buyers with the price per square foot in the building hitting below $2,000 on average. Not too shabby.

The building won't only have condos, but will also have office space on floors three through eight. Floors nine through 12 will hold resident amenities including a garden, library, game room, two lounges, and fitness center, the Schedule A reveals. By 6sqft's estimation, the building's crowning penthouse on the 62nd floor will be the highest residential apartment in the western hemisphere barring 432 Park and other Midtown supertalls.

A flashy, gold-framed design for the tower by CetraRuddy was revealed in late February. CetraRuddy is serving as both the architect of record and design architect for the project.
