Construction culminated at 232 East Broadway, a 26-story residential tower on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Designed by S4Architecture and developed by The Ascend Group with Suffolk Construction as the general contractor, the property is located on the corner of East Broadway and Clinton Street and is among the tallest structures in the area.
Much progress has taken place since our last update in March 2020, when excavation had yet to begin. The reinforced concrete superstructure has now reached its peak and work is progressing to prepare the walls for the installation of the facade.
The last part of the roof parapet was being formed at the time of our visit. We would expect to see floor-to-ceiling glass installed later this year. With its slender mass and modern windows, the building creates an interesting contrast with the surrounding architecture. Immediate west of 232 East Broadway is 226 East Broadway, which is undergoing renovations and renovations.
Below is a photograph taken in late July showing the building at about two-thirds of its height.
The updated render in the main photo of 232 East Broadway shows a slightly altered design, but still features the quirky, jagged pattern of windows, perimeter walls, and landscaped decks on the setbacks. The only significant difference is the subtraction of several balconies on the south elevation and a subtly higher mechanical extension.
Little was disclosed about the residential program and amenities. However, residents on the upper floors will certainly have panoramic views of the East River, Brooklyn, and the Lower Manhattan skyline. The closest tube to the property is the F train at East Broadway station, at the corner of East Broadway and Rutgers Street. A number of retail and dining options are located north of the Essex Crossing development.
232 East Broadway is scheduled for completion in November 2022, as indicated on the construction sign.
