<strong>The Woolworth Building</strong> was established in 1913 and stands at 792 ft. with 57 floors. The Woolworth is located at <strong>233 Broadway</strong> at Barclay Street in the [Financial District Manhattan] ( Cass Gilbert designed the building and he designed the tower to be seen as a freestanding skyscraper, so all four sides were treated architecturally. When he was designing the Woolworth Building, he wanted to incorporate Gothic themes with the modern idea of a skyscraper. The result, termed Gothic Revival, features gargoyles, arches and flying buttresses. The straight lines of the piers end are decorated with turrets, gargoyles, colored terracotta panels, and pinnacles. The lobby in the Woolworth has a Romanesque design covered in Skyros veined marble, stained-glass skylight, bronze furnishings, mosaics, and barrel vaulted ceilings. Also, there are sculpted caricatures of Frank Woolworth, Cass Gilbert and Louis Horowitz, the builder.The building was dubbed the Cathedral of Commerce upon its completion. Retail magnate Frank W. Woolworth paid $13.5 million cash out of his pocket for the building. It was the worlds tallest building for 17 years (19131930), until the Trump Building surpassed it. It was the most recognizable skyscraper in the world until the Chrysler Building was completed in 1930. A $20 million renovation was made between 1977 and 1981 by the Ehrenkrantz Group, in which much of the Terracotta was replaced with cast stone and removal of many gothic ornaments. The lower U-shaped part of the building is 29 stories high. The high-speed elevators were innovative, and the building's high office to elevator ratio made the structure profitable. In 2012, Alchemy Properties, and investment group, bought the top 30 floors of the landmark for $68 million and planned to lease them as office space.


Financial District

Home to many of Manhattan’s major financial institutions, the aptly named Financial District is located towards the southern end of the island. Two of Manhattan’s major streets, Wall Street and Broad Street, can be found in the area. Some must-see places for businesses include the New York Stock Exchange and the Federal Reserve Bank. The South Street Seaport outdoor mall has a number of shops for employees to explore.  Furthermore, Stone Street, a pedestrian-only, cobblestone street is home to numerous restaurant and bar options.  When the weather permits, take advantage of the outdoor seating areas for optimal people-watching.  

Attractions in the area include The New York City Police Museum and the Museum of American Finance. Additionally, during times of celebration, the city comes alive for the ticker-tape parade whose route is known as the Canyon of Heroes.

For workers who put in long hours at the office and want to live nearby, the Financial District may be the perfect option for you. In terms of average rent for office space, you will be hard-pressed to beat the Financial District’s $53/sqft.  It’s no wonder companies from a number of industries have joined the likes of Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, and American Express as office neighbors in the Financial District.

Nearby Districts Include: Tribeca, and Chinatown.
