Steel superstructure has topped out and curtain wall installation is underway at Aurora Capital Associates' 529 Broadway. Situated at the corner of Spring Street and Broadway in SoHo, the BKSK designed building will rise six stories and contain 34,000 square-feet of commercial space. The building replaces a recently demolished two-story warehouse structure from 1936. Landmarks approved the plans in September of 2013 with unusually positive remarks, due in part to the terracotta and glass façade design. Openings on the southern façade along Spring Street will gradually increase in size from left to right, allowing for more glazing at the Broadway corner. With the progress made on curtain wall installation, these design elements are starting to read on the facade. Yet to be installed are the terracotta panels that will clad the vertical columns and the horizontal bands which will transition from deep spandrels to thin blades at the Broadway corner.
Completion is slated for late 2016.
