The 31-story building located at 17 Battery Place was completed in 1904 and designed in a neo-Renaissance style by the architect Henry J. Hardenbergh. It is also known as the Whitehall Building, named after Peter Stuyvesant's 17th-century house originally located near the site. The structure was among the oldest structural steel-framed buildings of its size, until a $10m restoration and repair was phased over four years from 1993-1996 that has been considered one of the most extensive envelope renovations executed in New York City. At nearly one million total square feet the property contains a mixture of commercial and residential space. Located moments away from Bowling Green and the Charging Bull, 17 Battery Place stands as a true gateway to the city, with access to the Financial District's multiple amenities and the 25 acres of Battery Park. Closest transportation links include the 4 and 5 trains at Bowling Green with multiple other subway and ferry options also in walking distance.
