Mock up calls for 53-story, 742-foot-tall skyscraper

New renderings were leaked of Bill Rudin’s tower slated for 55 Broad Street in the Financial District, revealing yet another lofty structure coming to Lower Manhattan.

Tentative plans for the mixed-use building, which Rudin Management tapped architecture firm FXFOWLE to mock up, call for a 53-story, 742-foot-tall skyscraper in place of the existing 35-story office tower at the site, as The Real Deal previously reported.

In the rendering, picked up by YIMBY, the building appears to dwarf the adjacent structures, including the 527-foot-tall William Beaver House.

The site currently has 388,000 square feet of development rights, YIMBY reported. However Rudin could amass more should his firm obtain the rights for 45 Broad Street, a property Kent Swig purchased for $29 million in 2006 but failed to construct a planned 62-story condo tower. To that end, the firm could build a whopping 650,000 square feet encompassing the two sites.

Other skyscrapers coming to the area include Alexico Group’s 56 Leonard Street and 101 Murray Street, a joint project of Steve Witkoff and Fisher Brothers.  [YIMBY]Angela Hunt
