A new 5-story building with dual roof top decks has been approved within a L-shaped alley on Broadway. The future building is situated between Nudies Honky Tonk & Merchants on Broadway & next to Losers Bar & Grill along 4th Avenue South. The request for final site plan approval was submitted on February 8, 2022 and officially approved on February 17, 2022. The approval will allow for retail & restaurant uses.
The alley is currently used as a parking lot, although it can be tough to get a spot given the number of available spaces. It would also prove difficult given the continuous stream of pedestrians which often expands out into the street as the day progresses. When hunger strikes at the end of the night, you can find the occasional hotdog stand there to help you on your journey back home. Here’s the quick rundown:
Fourth & Broad
- What’s Now: Alley
- What’s Next: 5 Story Retail/Restaurant
- Address: 405 Broadway
- Owner: 4th & Broad LP
- Architect: Centric Architecture
- Civil: Ragan Smith
Designed by Centric Architecture, the new building pulls its architectural cues from the surrounding buildings, although, it sits a couple of floors higher. Those architectural details are displayed through its red brick façade, arches &archways, and molding details from the 1st floor to the roof line.
The building’s design on both Broadway & 4th Ave, has the traditional 3 story brick façade with its architectural accents. The next two floors give the look of a modern addition to a historic building. The 4th floor features a wall of floor to ceiling windows which integrates the window arches; while the 5th floor features two roof top decks that overlooks the street.
It wasn’t clear from the plans what branded retail or restaurant would operate from the space. However, the building elevations below provides context as to how the space will flow & function.
Although the plan detailed the limits of disturbance & construction access, it did not specify how it would redirect pedestrian foot traffic during that duration. Based on the checklist, it didn’t appear that was a requirement to meet during this phase of the process.
