Meringoff nears end of effort to restore classic Soho tower

Meringoff Properties, an affiliate of Himmel + Meringoff, is completing its restoration of the landmarked 462 Broadway.

The six-story, 165,000 s/f office and retail cast-iron building spans 400 linear feet in SoHo, making it one of the largest buildings of its type in New York City and an iconic example of this style of architecture.

Exterior work is completed and scaffolding has been removed.

The firm worked on the project with a team from PBDW Architects led by Sam White, the great-great grandson of legendary architect Stanford White.

PBDW worked in co-operation with the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission on the faithful restoration of 462 Broadway, which required a full exterior renovation and involved uncovering and analyzing the 1880 building’s original paint, and then successfully matching the skin’s original colors.

Allen Architectural Metals, nationally recognized for its expertise in restoring and preserving metal fabrications – including the recently completed U.S. Capitol project in Washington, DC — was responsible for restoring and recreating the building’s cast iron components.

The project has coincided with the availability of space on the first, second, and cellar levels.

Patrick A. Smith, Vice Chairman, and his team at JLL, has been retained for leasing the newly-available retail space — 8,500 s/f on the ground floor, 10,000 s/f on the second floor, and 16,000 s/f in the cellar.
Meringoff Properties President & CEO Jason Vacker commented, “Our goal has been to bring back 462 Broadway to once again stand out as one of SoHo’s best and most iconic historic buildings. I believe our team has accomplished that goal.

“The building and space are beautiful and we are receiving a strong response from potential tenants and brokers who want to take advantage of this outstanding opportunity.”
