Wasting no time getting started, Madison Equities and Italy-based Pizzarotti Group have begun soil testing at the site of their upcoming supertall tower 45 Broad Street. After 6sqft revealed a trio of preliminary renderings last month, Pizzarotti Group’s CEO Rance MacFarland told Curbed that the tower will stretch 1,100 feet high and have 86 floors. He also shared that it will contain 245 condo residences catering to “entry- and mid-level buyers.”
Since the announcement, a truck mounted with drilling and soil testing equipment has moved onto the cleared lot, and a recently filed permit states some excavation work will take place for more soil samples that will verify the extent of the below-grade structures and foundations. The developers expect to officially break ground on the project this fall, with a completion date sometime in 2018.
