Located at the intersection of Tribeca and the Financial District, 100 Church Street sits within the heart of a fully revitalized downtown Manhattan. Just steps away from the new World Trade Center and Fulton Street transit hubs, which offers hundreds of thousands of square feet of luxury retail, high-end restaurants and cultural facilities, this area is quickly redefining shopping and entertainment in New York City. In 2010, the building underwent a comprehensive redevelopment that included an update to the now contemporary lobby, replacement of all windows, and full infrastructure upgrades. With ultra-efficient center core floors, immediate access to 14 subway lines, PATH trains, and the Staten Island Ferry, and stunning views of Memorial Park, 100 Church Street is convenience and centrality at its absolute prime.
Constructed in 1958, 100 Church is an early downtown example of the new modern architecture which rose on Park Avenue and other Midtown blocks. One of the first Mid-Century Modern designs by Emery Roth & Sons, successor to the celebrated apartment designer, the building was the first postwar project downtown to fill a block with new construction. In its cubistic treatment, abstract massing and silver-blue façade scheme of alternating aluminum spandrels and navy panels, it illustrates the trend for clean lines based on the newest forms of engineering and technology.
100 Church Street is a block away from City Hall Park, one of New York’s oldest and most charming public spaces. Extensively restored and featuring a fountain dating from 1842, the park was where crowds gathered to hear George Washington read the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and where, in 1827, two days of celebrations marked the abolition of slavery in New York State.
