CONTEXTUAL ARCHITECTURE
THAT TRANSCENDS TIME

Inspired by Manhattan’s classical 19th and 20th century architecture, yet asserting a distinctly contemporary presence, 1245 Broadway by globally renowned architectural firm SOM is both contextual and unique. The neutral tone of the poured-in-place concrete recalls a traditional stone façade while massive punched windows bring light and views that appeal to today’s most sophisticated tenants.

Eco-conscious design and construction features enhance comfort, optimize energy efficiency, and contribute to a more sustainable corporate environment. Exterior and interior lighting by L’Observatoire International reach museum-quality standards of excellence. Understated, richly detailed interior amenity spaces have a Scandinavian sensibility.
