247 West 37th Street sits on land originally assembled by the prominent real estate developer A.E. Lefcourt, at which time it was the largest plot in the Garment District controlled by an individual owner. The current building was designed by the architectural firm of Gronenberg & Leuchtag and built by the Bricken Construction Company in 1924, and so was originally known as the Bricken Centre Building. The building has recently undergone significant renovations and boasts state-of-the-art elevators and a brand new lobby. 247 is home to an array of non-profit and fashion tenants such as JASA, Workmens Circle, The Settlement Housing Fund and the famous American designer, Prabal Gurung. Located in the base of the building is Stitch Bar & Lounge which was voted the best "After Work Bar" in New York City by Citysearch.com. Situated in the heart of the historic Garment District, the building allows for a convenient walk to nearly any amenity, and numerous transit options are blocks away, allowing for a hassle-free commute to or from the building.
