Built as a telecom switching hub for Verizon in the 1970s along the Hudson River, 375 Pearl Street is currently being redeveloped by Taconic Partners to provide Class A commercial office space for Lower Manhattan. The thin, vertical windows and heavy cladding on the exterior will be replaced with a floor-to-ceiling glass facade on portions, in order to reveal views and admit natural light to the interior. The lobby will be modernized, and an exterior plaza will be created. Elevators and mechanical systems will also be upgraded. Cook + Fox architects are handling the renovation.
Appealing features of the building are high ceilings (16 to 17 feet) and large floor plates (average 39,000 square feet each). Nearby transportation options include the A, C, E, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 trains as well as access to PATH service to New Jersey and the Staten Island Ferry.
