The unassuming, low-rise office building at 875 Washington Street in Midtown South was originally built in 1900. The original owner of the site was John Jacob Astor. The property was transferred to his grandson, William Astor, in 1878 after the partition of the Astor Estate. In 1887, builder John Jordan tapped architect James W. Cole to build a Queen Anne-style warehouse building on the two-lot property. The five-story building housed various produce and provisions merchants until it was sold to Starwood Urban Retail in 2000 and converted to office and retail space.
The property at 875 Washington Street maintains its original charm, sitting at the heart of the Gansevoort Market Historic District. The building is home to high-profile office and retail clients and is ideal for creative commercial tenants.
