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 Street on the north, Fourth Avenue to the east, 8th Street to the south, and Broadway to the west. It was originally home to the now-defunct Wanamaker's department store.

History

770 Broadway was built between 1903 and 1907 by American architect Daniel Hudson Burnham as an annex to the original Wanamaker's department store in New York, which was across 9th Street to the north[2] and had started its life as A. T. Stewart's "Iron Palace" in 1862. The two buildings were connected by a sky bridge, dubbed the "Bridge of Progress", as well as a tunnel under 9th Street. The Annex originally included a central court and an auditorium with a pipe organ. The auditorium hosted ambitious musicales with top musicians and orchestras, and was also an early television studio.

In 1954, due to the northward migration of the shopping district, Wanamaker's decided to close the business. Department stores at the time were expanding to the suburbs. The northern lot was sold in 1955. A fire the next year gutted the Stewart building while it was under demolition,[3][4] injuring seventy people.[5] The annex at 770 Broadway survived and was turned into office space that quickly filled with tenants, among them Chemical Bank (now J.P. Morgan Chase).[6]

Current tenants

The building is managed by Vornado Realty Trust.[1] 770 Broadway houses several major global brands, including:

The basement, street-level, and second floor was originally the Wanamaker's store. It was tenanted by a Kmart discount department store, opened in November 1996. It closed suddenly in July 2021.[13][14] The store is expected to become a Wegmans location in late 2023.[15][16]
