Morpurgo Architects designed 62 Broadway Plaza, a sustainable 14,000 sf retail and office building overlooking the Woodcliff Lake Reservoir. The architecture was conceived with both the user and the environment in mind.
A vertical green trellis extends from the building, sheltering a pedestrian walkway, while the offices step out to a green roof terrace. The vertical green trellis serves as a literal and figurative billboard for the new sustainable initiative.
Photovoltaic panels are arrayed horizontally on the soaring flat roof. The warm cedar cladding nestles this modern steel and glass structure within the suburban wooded site. The light-filled retail spaces feature eighteen-foot ceilings and mezzanines. Above, the curved office façade looks out on its green terrace and reservoir views beyond.
From a detail level to an urban level, 62 Broadway Plaza projects a modern sustainable vision. In granting approval for the building, the Planning Board congratulated Morpurgo Architects for our “spectacular” design. They enthusiastically welcomed 62 Broadway Plaza as the “signature building for the revitalized Woodcliff Lake retail corridor.”
