7 Day Street near completion in the Financial District, Manhattan

Construction is nearing completion at 7 Day Street, a 34-story mixed-use tower in the Financial District. Formerly known as 185 Broadway, the 404-foot-high structure was designed by FXCollaborative and developed by SL Green Realty and will offer 260,000 square feet and 209 rental units ranging from studios to three-bedroom layouts. Douglas Elliman Development Marketing handles marketing and sales, and INC Architecture & Design is responsible for the interiors, which will include three floors of amenities. Bavariani McGovern is the general contractor for the project, located at the corner of Broadway and Day Street. The development was made possible by unused air rights purchased from SL Green from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA).

The project has continued to progress steadily since our last update in September 2020, when the reinforced concrete superstructure was approaching the top. The glass and metal facade now covers almost the entire exterior except for the basements.

Tall pier scaffolding remains in place but must be removed once the above work is complete. The ground floor facades along Dee Street and Broadway have yet to be installed. A great deal of detailing has been done on the glass and metal panels on the L-shaped corner pockets on the north side of the building. The south side has a simpler dark enclosure with a few vertical bands of windows on the eastern and western ends of the edifice. There is a subtle sheen on every panel that makes up this flat side of 7 Day Street.
