Faits

  • The building occupies most of its large plot, rising in triple setbacks, with only the western portion of the building, facing Bowling Green, rising to the full height of 33-storeys.
  • 2 Broadway rose in 1959 next to the 26 Broadway at the beginning of Broadway as one of the first modernist office towers in Downtown Manhattan.
  • It replaced the Produce Exchange Bank Building (architect George B. Post of the World Building, 1884) as an "acceptable" sacrifice to get the Downtown development on the way.
  • The completed facade consists of a glass wall of alternate-sized glass panes of a bluish tint, having a similar overall appearance as the glass-walled facades of the Jacob K. Javits Federal Building.
  • Original designs by William Lescaze & Associates with Kahn & Jacobs, had a full-plot base with a tower slab placed at right angles with Broadway. In 1957, however, developers Uris Brothers hired Emery Roth & Sons to utilize as much as possible of the building rights with their design.
