The future Broadway (NYC) retail now under construction at the angled intersection with 67th Street will feature unique architectural designs that will put it in competition for the most spectacular store in the chain. The steel-framed building has risen from the near-total demolition of a former two-level Victoria’s Secret store, with but a single wall retained to avoid city burdensome permit requirements. Priced at over $37.9 million, the 75-foot wide storefront of the building will mimic the all-glass design of the Boylston Street (Boston) store, but with a twist–it will be slanted to mirror the angle of the two streets. Topping of the building will be its most-viewed feature: a slightly-arched glass roof supported by steel arches, all reminiscent of the historic St. Pancras train station in London (UK). The roof will span the rear three-quarters of the retail space, providing light and an airy atmosphere to the interior space. The store was originally reported to open by Thanksgiving, but instead will likely open by Christmas. View aerial photos of the roof and watch a video after the break.
