The Broadway Trade Center

Downtown’s giant Broadway Trade Center is undergoing a restoration of its exterior, columns, and archways, but the most dramatic part of the work to transform the 1.1 million square foot structure hasn’t even begun yet.

The overhaul will turn the 8 story, 1906 building into a 15 story structure with the addition of five mezzanine type levels inside and three rooftop levels. It will have with a food hall, bars, retail, a hotel and a rooftop public park.

First Floor: This floor will house the Earth Market. Intended as a twist on Grand Central market, the space will hold 20 smaller food vendors and four full scale restaurants. The renovation will also create a mezannine that looks out on the market; that space will have four bards. This floor will also have retail, and the plan now is to find three major tenant who would serve as anchors, taking up between 15,000 and 30,000 square feet.

Third and Fourth Floors: Office space. Apparently, the big contenders for the leases are major tech companies, as many as 3,000 people could be working from these floors.

Fifth and sixth floors: These floors would be occupied by a restaurant, bar, spa and private club.

Seventh Floor: Rooftop access! The 42,000 square foot roof will hold a public green space, one restaurant, two bars and an Olympic sixed pool. This is where movie screenings, concerts and other events would likely take place.
