180 Broadway / Pace University Dorms

Pace University is erecting a new, 24-story dormitory at 180 Broadway in the Financial District. Located at the southeast corner of Broadway and John Street, the new dormitory will be the fourth for Pace in Lower Manhattan, and will replace one being leased in Brooklyn Heights.

The Karl Fischer-designed 24-story tower dormitory for Pace University is now beginning to rise at 180 Broadway and John Street.

Our photos show the first three floors going up at the construction site - all of which is slated for retail space. The remaining 21 stories in the new building will be constructed as a dormitory, housing more than 600 college students.

Tishman Construction is building the tower at the corner of John Street and Broadway following the demolition last summer of  two low-rise buildings that occupied the corner lot. 
Construction is slated for completion early in 2013, with student occupancy anticipated by the end of first quarter of 2013.
