The office building at 90 John Street in Lower Manhattan was built in 1932 and designed by Clinton & Russell, Springsteen & Goldhammer. In the late 1990s, the building was part of the ‘Plug ‘n Go’ program, an effort by The Downtown Alliance and the Economic Development Corp. to lure technology firms to Lower Manhattan. The program offered below-market, pre-wired startup office space on short-term leases, in an attempt to create a new ‘Information Technology District.’ The program resulted in nearly 100 leases totaling more than 440,000 square feet in the first year, including leases at 90 John Street. Many of the tech tenants still call the mixed-use tower home, and leases at 90 John are still eligible for various real estate incentive programs.
