Located at the northeast corner of Prince Street, the former Havemeyer Building was constructed in 1895 as a sewing factory and is a New York City landmark. But its history isn’t all that’s driving the attraction for Gotham’s start-up community, which has flocked to 568 Broadway in droves: the George Post-designed tower’s spacious 28,000-square-foot floor plates are perfect for encouraging the type of collaborative working environment that technology companies crave.
568 Broadway stands on the former site of Niblo’s Garden, which was once one of New York City’s oldest theaters. Built in 1827 as the Sans Souci theater, the building was rebuilt several times after fires until it was razed for good in 1895. Beginning in 1852, the theater itself was part of the Metropolitan Hotel – one of the city’s highest end hotels during the 19th century – and where the Japanese Crown Prince stayed during a visit to New York in 1860.
568 Broadway’s highly desirable location in SoHo is also adjacent to multiple subway lines – convenient for tenants regardless of their industry. And with 12-foot ceiling heights that allow extensive natural daylighting, 568 Broadway’s 300,000 square feet of commercial office space are perfect for tenants from all stripes of creative industries.
