Project Info

1938 Broadway Mixed Use Project
The proposed project would include the demolition of the existing one-story Encinal Broadway building located at 1930-1946 Broadway, demolition of the paved parking lot south of that building, and the construction of a 56-story high-rise tower approximately 715 feet tall. The Tapscott Building also would be rehabilitated as part of the proposed project. The high-rise tower combined with the refurbished Tapscott Building would have approximately 1.57 million gross sq. ft. (gsf) of space, providing approximately 829.500 gsf of office space, 307,700 gsf of parking, 220 residential units on the upper floors covering approximately 350,600 gsf, and about 85,200 gsf of retail space. The high-rise tower would resemble a helical stair case stepping back from a broad base up to the slim residential tower above the 33rd floor. The building would have a dual structural system consisting of an interior core combined with an exterior painted or stainless steel frame. This structural design would make the building particularly resistant to earthquake loads. The building would be sheathed primarily in glass separated by metal spandrel panels. These panels may also be covered with photovoltaic cells to help provide electrical power for the building.
