Gilded Age of New York Real Estate: Exploring New Iterations of the Classics

Jan 27, 2018

Gilded Age of New York Real Estate: Exploring New Iterations of the Classics with Ken Horn, Founder and President, Alchemy Properties; John Cetra, Founding Principal, CetraRuddy; Adam Koogler, Design Director, Enterprise at WeWork; Howard Zimmerman, Principal, Howard L. Zimmerman Architects PC and moderated by Donald Albrecht, Co-Curator, Museum of the City of New York.

All over the city, from neighborhoods such as the Financial District to West Harlem, developers are converting iconic municipal and office monoliths into luxury housing and innovative commercial concepts.

But how can these building both speak to the future while still honoring and preserving their historic legacies? We look into how some of New York’s legendary addresses — such as the Woolworth Building, 40 Broad Street, 108 Leonard and 30 Morningside Heights — are being rejuvenated and readapted. Hear from the developers and architects who are re-envisioning provocative new uses for old structures, and breathing new life into the city’s architectural icons.
