24 Aug Tammany Hall’s new dome glows, but will building attract tenants?
The Village Sun August 24, 2020
After four years of work, plus stoppages due to COVID-19, the renovation of historic Tammany Hall is now nearly complete with the installation of a massive three-story glass-and-steel dome offering sweeping views of northeast Union Square.
The legendary building, once the Manhattan headquarters of a corrupted Democratic Party machine in the last century, has been expanded to roughly 73,113 square feet of rentable space, according to owner Reading International. Real estate agents have the unenviable task of finding commercial tenants or a single flagship renter for the landmarked neo-Georgian colonial during a pandemic. Their signs at the site on the corner of E. 17th St. and Park Ave. South tout “iconic branding opportunities” and “flexible sizes” in retail and office space.
