W. & J. Sloane Building

649 Broadway, NoHo, Manhattan

Prepared for conversion to residential lofts on the upper floors of a five story, 100,000sf store and factory building in the NoHo Historic District. Designed by Griffith Thomas in a Italianate Commercial Palace Style and constructed in 1871 with a marble façade for the prominent W. & J. Sloane Department Store.

On Valentine’s Day in 1979, a substantial fire occurred in the building which burned for over a week, leaving only the shell of building. The facade was on the verge of being demolished by New York City because it was in an unstable condition. An injunction was sought at the New York State Court and time was granted to stabilize the facade, even though Broadway had to remain closed to traffic.
