Silverstein Caps Building-Wide Revamp of 120 Broadway

Silverstein Properties recently celebrated the completion of its $50-million capital improvements project at the Equitable Building at 120 Broadway. Tenant Beyer Blinder Belle was hired to oversee the building-wide renovation to reinvigorate the 104-year-old building’s iconic architectural features.

“Our capital improvements not only celebrate the building’s rich history and ornate architecture, but have also introduced lifestyle-driven amenities that inspire and energize today’s workforce,” said Joseph Artusa, SVP of leasing at Silverstein Properties. “The result has significantly improved our tenant experience, creating a 21st century workplace with a distinct New York character.”

Along with restoring the building’s lobby and expanding the property’s retail spaces, the capital improvement program also reimagined and reopened the original Bankers Club. At one time an exclusive private dining facility for celebrities and downtown visitors, the Bankers Club closed in 1979 and was later occupied by Lester Schwab.
