Formerly known as the U.S. Oil Building, 26 Broadway, New York, NY 10004 is located on the corner of Whitehall St and Beaver St. Completed in 1924, the building stands at 31 floors tall and features over 802,000 square feet in office space for rent, make it quite a decent sized structure. Although an older building, 26 Broadway has undergone various capital improvement plans over the course of its life. The building stands in close proximity to the yellow, green, and red MTA subway line as well as the Staten Island ferry. Hundreds of different restaurants also pepper the surrounding neighborhood. The edifice’s proximity to the other office buildings that surround the neighborhood make this space ideal for an organization needing closeness to partner firms or clients. As a result, such excellent placement adds a significant amount of value for the building’s tenants. Originally owned by Standard Oil, the company sold the building in 1956. It is one of the first buildings in Manhattan to have setbacks and is topped by a pyramid modeled on the Mausoleum of Maussollos. The building was designated as a New York City landmark in 1995.

    Financial District

    The Financial District, nicknamed FiDi, is widely considered the leading financial center of the world. Financial District office space houses many of New York City’s financial institutions–banks, insurance companies and other large corporations–such as the New York Stock Exchange (the world’s largest stock exchange by market capitalization) and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

    Giants such as Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank and American Express already work out of the Financial District, as do many startups and mature mid-size firms. Given the available inventory, accessibility via public transit, and low asking rents, the Financial District has appeal to a range of businesses inside and outside the financial services world.
