SL Green - 1552-1560 Broadway

The architectural challenge: how to knit together three existing buildings in Times Square while restoring a landmark building to its former glory.

Location New York, NY
Size 83,000 SF
Year 2014

1552-1560 Broadway is a combined set of buildings on the northeast corner of Broadway, at the intersection of 7th Avenue and West 46th Street. 1552 Broadway was the landmarked I. Miller showroom and shoe store dating back to the mid-1920s.

Jeff Sutton of Wharton Properties purchased the site in partnership with SL Green and Newmark with the intent of joining the spaces to create a 30,000 SF retail opportunity in the heart of Times Square. The building entrance lobby and elevator core needed to be reconfigured in order to make this assembly of spaces work.

TPG designed a full restoration of the historic facade on the 1552 building that included recreating and replacing the statuary; joined (3) floors of 1560 to align with 1552 and added a new mid-block building to serve as the commercial entrance to 1560 with a new sky lobby on the 4th floor.

The restoration of the I. Miller Building at 1552 Broadway received the prestigious New York Landmarks Conservancy’s Lucy G. Moses Preservation Award in 2014.
