888 Broadway Building Renovation

New York, New York

Originally built in the 1880s, 888 Broadway, and it’s 10-story annex, occupies an irregular, L-shaped lot in the heart of New York City’s historic Flatiron District. Currently home to ABC Carpet & Home, the building is undergoing a transformation that will unlock floor area for new, premier office space in the popular neighborhood. Brought on board by Normandy Real Estate Partners, Mancini will reimagine the historic building and modernize to meet the 21st Century needs of the area’s burgeoning tech and media workforce.

The building’s renovation includes codes and safety upgrades, historic façade restoration, and new building systems and amenities that will promote wellness and occupant comfort, including a penthouse addition with access to the rooftop terrace. The team is reworking the interior spaces to include 270,000 rentable square footage. ABC will still maintain its retail presence, but reduced from six floors to two, and the remaining upper floors will be renovated into Class-A office space, all without closing the ground-floor restaurants or the store during construction.
