The Financial District is getting yet another skyscraper: YIMBY reports that Roe Corporation filed plans for a new 42-story, mixed-use building at 265 Broadway, right across from City Hall Park.
The project joins a host of similar developments in the hood, including (though not limited to) the 25-story tower planned next to Trinity Church, and the 54-story residential tower going in at 23-32 Park Row, former site of J&R Music.
The 510-foot-tall tower would hold an 80-room hotel on the first 12 floors, and 38 rather sizable condos spread over the remaining 30 stories. Most of the apartments would be full-floor units or duplexes, with the top three floors dedicated to a surely-swanky triplex penthouse.
The hotel portion of the building would include a lounge, lobby, garden, and offices on the first floor, and a restaurant and corresponding kitchen on the second. Noted New York City hotel designer Gene Kaufman applied for the permits.
The development will replace the five-story office building that currently stands on the site, though demolition plans have yet to be filed, YIMBY says.
