The Candler Building is a historic skyscraper located in Times Square, Manhattan, New York, New York. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.


The Candler Building was built between 1912 and 1914 by Coca-Cola owner and magnate Asa Griggs Candler of Atlanta. It consists of a five-bay, 24-story section fronting on 42nd Street and a three-bay, 17-story section fronting on 41st Street. The main facade on 42nd street consists of a three-story base, a midsection from the fourth through 17th story, and a crown from the 18th to 24th story. It features white terra cotta around arched windows on the 42nd street facade. It was one of the last skyscrapers built before the 1916 Zoning Resolution, which required setbacks.[2]: 2–4 

The Candler Building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]

The building used to house the Sam H. Harris Theatre, which had theatrical productions from 1914 to 1933, and was a movie house into the 1970s, and then demolished around 1996.[3]
