17 Battery Place is a 31-story building completed in 1904 and designed in a neo-Renaissance style by the architect Henry J. Hardenbergh. Also known as the Whitehall Building, it is 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. It underwent a $10m restoration and repair from 1993-1996. This 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.
The building is moments away from Bowling Green and the Charging Bull. As such it 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. There are several other subway and ferry options also in walking distance.
