For a long time, it seemed that restoration and use of this 34 story sky scraper would never happen – but here we are – returning for a preview tour of the David Broderick Tower.
Thanks to the good people at J.C. Beal Construction we get to go on a tour of the Broderick Tower here.. The building is really coming along, and even has a finished model unit now. Many efforts are going into retaining as much as the buildings original beauty and design as well as its rather aged patina in places. Financially pragmatic, and yet historically sensitive.
First thing you are hit with is the splendid lobby interiors and ceilings.
First stop on the tour was straight to the roof. I haven’t been up there since 2004.

The top penthouse level is not finished at this time because this type of construction on skyscrapers goes bottom to top. The model unit was done on a higher floor to show off views, while the remaining construction continues low to high.
Let’s check out some of the best views in the entire City while we are up here…

First two levels will be restaurant and mezzanine. Parking is plentiful for the building, via the underground municipal lot beneath Grand Circus Park (just like the Kales uses). The entry lobby will be staffed at all times.
