One of Sweden’s leading real estate companies.
Klövern is one of Sweden’s largest listed real estate companies with more than 400 properties situated in Sweden, Copenhagen and New York. 1245 Broadway—located on a prominent corner on Broadway and 31st Street in Manhattan—is the latest project from Klövern and real estate development company GDSNY. Construction on 1245 Broadway began in early 2019. The Skidmore Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM)-designed commercial office building will span 180,000 square feet and 22 stories, and will offer retail and restaurant space on the ground floor. 1245 Broadway is situated in one of Manhattan’s most active, and quickly changing neighborhoods. In recent years, the NoMad area has become an epicenter of investment and cultural gravity. The site is within walking distance of Herald Square, Penn Station, Madison Square Park, The NoMad Hotel, Ace Hotel New York, and the developments at Manhattan West and Hudson Yards.
The 12-foot floor-to-ceiling heights on each floor will be emphasized by modular floor-to-ceiling picture windows (also 12 feet high), which frame views from the office spaces and will flood the expansive floors with natural light. These triple-insulated windows will eliminate the need for perimeter heating, reduce heating and cooling costs, limit sound penetration, and allow for maximum views of the city. Generous terraces will provide tenants an opportunity—rare in Manhattan’s office buildings—to connect to the urban surroundings. A private tenant amenity lounge will include skylights, private phone booths, a fireplace, communal work areas, and a beverage station—all with a minimalist feeling, evocative of Scandinavian design.
