Major New Office Development Coming to 799 Broadway, Greenwich Village

New building applications have revealed that a rumored high-end office development is moving forward at 799 Broadway, in Greenwich Village, Manhattan. Global architecture firm Perkins+Will will be in charge of its design.

Original reports said the development of 799 Broadway was limited to a gut renovation of the interior structure and a vertical expansion of the historic corner property. Permits filed this month, however, reveal the construction of a new, 12-story, 182-foot-tall building containing 182,626 square feet of Class-A office space. An additional 10,032 square feet will be dedicated to an unspecified community facility.

The total construction area measures 128,539 square feet.

Originally constructed in 1853 as the St. Denis Hotel, the building was designed by 19th century American architect James Renwick, Jr., who also designed Grace Church across Broadway. The property was purchased in 2016 for $101 million in by Normandy Real Estate Partners and Ares Management, when the building was nearly 100% occupied by short-leased retail storefronts and a local medical office.

Normandy is now reportedly the primary developer following the departure of Ares Management from the joint investment.

    Very very inadequate description of former occupancy of the building: the many offices in the building were mostly occupied by psychotherapists and practitioners of other kinds of treatment, like chiropractic, massage therapy, movement therapy, acupuncture, etc. All of course have lost their offices and dispersed.

    A private online group that is carefully restricted to people who maintained practices in the building has about 400 members. This is the magnitude of the resource that the neighborhood and the city have lost.

  3. So the city lost a bunch of quack “medicine.” What a tragedy, people will have to seek out treatment that passes the minor barrier of scientific efficacy.

    • Clark. It’s your loss that your mind is as closed as the building they’re knocking down. Just hope you don’t get truly sick and have to rely on the “real doctors” to pull you through.

  4. Stop destroying New York City’s history and the history of our nation. The first telephone equipment was tested in this building.

  5. Such a shame greedy developers don’t respect NY History.
