WITH A CAPTIVATING PAST

Some beginnings were never meant to be humble

The Broad Exchange Building has made a significant historical and architectural contribution to the Financial District, having seen constant evolution in its century of life. From workers to renters to owners. From beacon of financial dominance to lifestyle destination. From pivotal icon in New York’s oldest district to the heart of the city’s newest neighborhood.

Turn-of-the-Century Architecture

Renowned architectural firm Clinton & Russell employed innovative skyscraper building technologies—including iron framing, building on bedrock and installing high-speed elevators—when they constructed their Beaux-Arts masterpiece in 1902. An ornate facade completes The Broad Exchange Building’s regal appearance, featuring Greek figures, lion’s heads and floral ornaments, as well as Doric columns matching the Stock Exchange just across the street.

DESIGN HIGHLIGHTS

Capturing the zeitgeist of the 1890s and the early 1900s, the architecture and design of The Broad Exchange Building is as distinctive as it is stunning.
