Construction on 7 Dey Street, a 34-story mixed-use skyscraper in the financial district, is nearing completion. The structure formerly known as 185 Broadway was designed by FXCollaborative and developed by SL Green Realty. Douglas Elliman Development Marketing will take care of marketing and sales and INC Architecture & Design will take care of the interiors, which will have three floors. Pavarini McGovern is the general contractor for the project on the corner of Broadway and Dey Streets. The development was made possible by unused flight rights that SL Green acquired from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA).
The project has made steady progress since our last update in September 2020, when the reinforced concrete superstructure was about to be topped off. The glass-metal facade now covers almost the entire exterior with the exception of the lowest storeys.
The tall sidewalk scaffolding will remain in place but should be dismantled as soon as the above work is complete. The facade on the first floor along Dey Street and Broadway has yet to be installed from the outside. The glass and metal cladding of the recessed L-corner on the north side of the building is implemented in great detail. The south side has a simpler dark shell with only a few vertical window strips at the east and west ends of the building. There’s a subtle sheen on every panel that makes up this flat side of 7 Dey Street.
Each house is equipped with wide floorboards made of white oak, oversized windows, quartz kitchen worktops and floor-to-ceiling rear walls, custom-made cabinets with integrated lighting and appliances, porcelain bathroom tiles, custom-made washbasins and mirrors with integrated lighting, as well as Bosch washing machines and dryers.
The living facilities include a 24-hour lobby, a concierge with valet parking, a lounge, a co-working lounge with wet bar, a conference room, a fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, a yoga studio, bicycle storage room, and a penthouse club lounge with cocktail tables and a wet bar, an outdoor terrace with dining and demonstration areas, an outdoor bar with grill stations, a sundeck and a lounge with a fireplace. Below is an exterior view of the landscaped outdoor patio space, which features sunrises over the East River overlooking the diverse architectural styles of the financial district.
Located adjacent to one of the entrances to the Fulton Transit Center, the property will have 17,000 square feet of flagship retail space on the basement, ground floor, and second floors, and 26,000 square feet of commercial space on floors three through five. There will be column-free retail on the first floor overlooking Broadway and 22-foot ceilings. On the opposite side of Dey Street, there will be two separate entrance lobbies for residents and commercial space.
7 Dey Street should be ready next year.
