When completed in 1902, the landmark Broad Exchange Building, located at 25 Broad in the heart of the financial district, was America’s largest office building with the highest real estate value in Manhattan. First converted to condominiums in 1997, Me and General Design were brought in on the massive residential renovation project in 2011. Visions of the building’s prewar grandeur greet you as you enter the lobby — original 19th century marble clad walls, gold leafing, and a 48 foot-long imported silk and wool rug. We created an amenity package befitting of this powerhouse building, featuring a resident lounge with TV, pool tables and catering kitchen; a fitness center with separate yoga space and a Golf simulator; a children’s playroom with computer workstations; and a roof terrace with outdoor showers, grills and kitchen from which to enjoy the impressive 21-story views. We also designed 2 leasing centers, 4 model apartments and a wing of 19 apartments called the A-line, all of which feature luxury finishes, unique pieces mixed in with ease, and the ultimate in modern functionality. Legacy, restored.
