195 Broadway is a 29-story, landmarked tower at the corner of Fulton and Dey Streets in lower Manhattan. Owned by L&L Holding Company, the 1-million-square-foot tower was built in 1916 and was home to AT&T until the company moved to Midtown in 1983. After a renovation in the mid-1980s, in 2008 195 Broadway earned an Energy Star award with a score of 87.
Designed by William Welles Bosworth, the neo-classical tower was built in three phases between 1912 and 1923. AT&T actually asked Bosworth to design a structure that “imparts a sense of solidity, permanence, and enduring quality.” Indeed, 195 Broadway’s architecture is a direct reference to the ancient Greeks and Romans; 50 Doric columns line the lobby and all 183 exterior columns and walls were built with Vermont granite. The building also, allegedly, contains the most marble of any building in New York City.
With typical office floors of approximately 40,000 square feet and direct access to 12 subway lines and PATH trains to New Jersey, 195 Broadway offers tenants a convenient Downtown location that’s steeped in New York City history. Soon, 195 Broadway will be immediately adjacent to the new World Trade Center and all of its retail, cultural, and educational attractions.
