770 Broadway is a large mixed-use commercial office building in NoHo, Manhattan, in lower Manhattan, New York City. The building occupies an entire square block between 9th and 8th Streets from north to south, and between Broadway and Fourth Avenue, from west to east. It was originally home to the now-defunct Wanamaker's department store.

History

770 Broadway was built between 1903 and 1907 as an annex to the original Wanamaker's department store in New York, which was located north across 9th Street. The two buildings were connected by a sky bridge, dubbed the "Bridge of Progress", as well as a tunnel that ran under 9th Street. In 1954, due to the northward migration of the shopping district, Wanamaker decided to close the business. The northern lot was sold in 1955 and a fire in 1956 gutted the building. The annex at 770 Broadway survived, however, and was turned into office space that quickly filled with tenants, among them Chase Manhattan Bank (now Chase).

Current tenants

Currently, it serves as the New York or worldwide headquarters to several major global brands, including:

  • The Huffington Post
  • Facebook
  • AOL
  • J.Crew
  • Nielsen
  • Bluestone Lane Coffee
  • The building is managed by Vornado Realty Trust.
