The landmarked five-story building at 1165 Broadway in NoMad could play host to a 20-story glass addition, should a proposal from the Spector Group win approval.

The proposed addition to the mixed-use mid-rise building, once a hub for illegal activities such as counterfeiting, would have to secure approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission in order to come to fruition, and no further details of the plan have surfaced as of yet. No architect or projected completion date has been named.

The NoMad area has played host to a number of condominium developments as of late, including HFZ Capital’s rental-to-condo conversion at 88 Lexington Avenue and the soon-to-be razed Bancroft Building at 3-7 West 29th Street, Between Broadway And Fifth Avenue, which is slated to become a 350,000-square-foot mixed-use tower.
