10 Astor place was built in 1876 by the architect Griffith Thomas in a neo-Grecian style, and originally constructed as a factory and printing office. This building stands 7 stories tall and encompasses 156,000 square feet featuring a recently renovated building lobby.
The building's loft-like spaces feature high ceilings and large windows offering an abundance of natural light. Located on Astor Place and in the Noho district, the building is close to the buzz of the Village with NYU and Washington Square Park just moments away.
Retail, coffee shops and restaurants offer a variety of amenities along with quick, easy access to the R, W and 6 trains.
Noho’s famous, landmarked, cast iron buildings with their iconic fire escapes are among the finest in the world, and were originally home to the city’s textile industry. As the textile merchants moved on, the neighborhood fell into decline until it was re-discovered by artists and gallery owners seeking sprawling spaces, who brought life back to the empty buildings.
Today, although some galleries remain, the district south of Houston Street is alive with commerce as one of the city’s great retail meccas, drawing heavy footfall from across the city and the world. High-end international fashion retailers line the streets, with Prada’s Rem Koolhaas-designed flagship, Balenciaga, Versace, Louis Vuitton and many more showcasing the finest in fashion. Along Broadway shoppers head to Nike, Converse, Zara and H&M, plus Bloomingdale’s Downtown store, and those not after apparel are drawn to Apple, the MoMA Design Store, or to browse in the Housing Works Bookstore.
Interspersed within you will find luxurious boutique hotels and numerous restaurants, bars and cafés that serve the bustling neighborhood. In floors above the ground floor retail, offices and lofty residential space are among some of the most coveted in Manhattan. Commercial tenants in the area include Estée Lauder and the world’s largest children’s book publisher Scholastic.
