Over a century ago, the Woolworth Building first pierced the New York City skyline—a soaring, neo-gothic cathedral of commerce that defined the cityscape of New York’s past. This historic and iconic landmark is now fully equipped to support the spatial and technological needs of today’s and tomorrow’s businesses. Above the glorious, classic arched lobby; agencies, firms, start-ups and other companies find a home appointed with every modern convenience and need. Set in a neighborhood alive with commerce, dining, transportation and infrastructure; the Woolworth Building is, was, and always will be a New York City icon.
WAY TO RISE
OF IT ALL
Today, the heart of New York commerce beats with a vibrancy and creativity like never before. Gone are the days of Downtown being synonymous with only three-piece suits and stodgy bureaucrats. The trendy eateries and markets of Tribeca have encroached from the north, the West Side waterfront development has created a connection to nature, and the winding old streets boast converted loft apartments and gems of bars and shops. The elegant gas lights still burn in City Hall Park, welcoming newcomers and old neighbors. Towering above, at the center of everything stands the Woolworth Building, as iconic today as it was 100 years ago. Below the surface, you’ll find a subway connection to almost anywhere you could want to go in the city — and beyond.
