The historic building at 295 Lafayette Street in Lower Manhattan was originally built in 1186. It occupies a full city block in Nolita, bounded by Lafayette, Houston, Mulberry and Jersey streets, and is owned by Kushner Properties. The building was designed by Albert Wagner in the Romanesque Revival architectural style, and was built to serve as the printing facility of the J. Ottmann Litographic Company. It was expanded in 1892 and served as the longtime home of Puck Magazine, up until 1918. After that, 295 Lafayette housed several printing presses, and now provides office space for architectural firms and digital media companies. In the early 2010s, Kushner added six penthouse apartments on the top floors of the building.
