Can anyone tell me whatever happened to the plan involving a total redo of the Palace and the plan for new retail there

Have not been in the area for about 5 years and just wondering if it ever got off the ground

Thanks

Yes, construction started on schedule when it was announced.  When I was in NYC in January 2020, it was well underway.  Not sure what the latest is on it.  It is scheduled to reopen sometime in 2022.

TSX, the developer I believe, posted some photos of the  interior back in March of this year.

Thanks to all

Know the Brooklyn Paramount movie palace was supposed to be restored but it stopped dead in its tracks by the pandemic. No idea if it will ever be started up again

Past by it last week and yes… construction has been ongoing for quite some time.

Crazy to think it's bene practically three years since a show has been at the Palace.

I've walked by a few time in the last couple of weeks and from both streets you could've seen all the way in. From 47th street it was haunting to see where the stage used to be.

TSX has posted again, looks like they haven’t even done the lifting process yet and it won’t happen until later this year.

It's 2022. Will the Palace be open this summer? Last I've seen, construction for the whole building hit the "halfway mark" in November 2021. Not sure if that means just the steel/glass or if that includes the infrastructure inside as well. What that means for the Palace is up in the air I suppose, as the theater project more or less seems separate from the rest of the tower that's being built there. With these construction projects, typically the part that makes the most money (the tenant floors) are the ones that open first, with performance venues like this as the last priority. Of course this is a Broadway theater so... maybe it'll be reversed.

There's about to be a story about this on NY's ABC7 5:30 pm news - presumably they'll post the clip on line after!

That is pretty cool! Curious what the renovations will be. More wing space?

Just wondering if they're going to upgrade the playing space and backstage space.

I wonder if Back to the Future will find it's home here from a London Transfer? (If it ever comes over) 

Kind of makes sense that a show about time travel, and a technically advanced  one, would be a perfect fit  for a 'brand new' theatre.

I have walked past there several times lately during the day. The front is wide open and it is weird looking in and straight back to a cement wall, knowing the theater is above that big empty space. 


Just give the world Love.

Back to the Future have looked at Broadway theatres and not this one. It’s coming over sooner than the Palace reopening

I really hope this actually transfers, and doesn’t end up like DreamGirls

Is that a rendering of what it'll look like post-reno? Have they changed anything in the theatre interior? I can't actually remember what it looks like in there, but that balcony seems HIGH and small.

I always remembered it as so dark and gloomy so the gold is a nice touch.

That balcony always felt like it was on another planet entirely…
