1560 Broadway was built in 1925 and designed by the Bethlehem Engineering Corporation. It is a historic, 17-story building located in the heart of Times Square. Home to Actors’ Equity, 1560 Broadway underwent major redevelopment in 2014 and was connected to the neighboring landmarked I. Miller Building by architects Rosen Johnson. The ambitious project included the addition of a monumental new office entrance, a 100-foot-long fourth floor sky lobby served by shuttle elevators and providing direct dispatch elevators to the top floors, and the opening up of four contiguous floors of prime Times Square retail space, created by moving the original office entrance, to deliver significant street presence. Positioned at the center of the Theater District, 1560 Broadway is a landmark of commerce that now takes an even more prominent place in this always vibrant location, drawing people to world-renowned shows, major retailers and a multitude of eateries. Numerous subway lines at nearby 42nd St-Times Square, Rockefeller Center, 49th Street and Port Authority provide fast transportation links with all areas of Manhattan and beyond.
