Holtz House, 7 East 20th Street

Between Fifth Avenue & Broadway

Description of Holtz House

Holtz House at 7 East 20th Street is a 12-story, pre-war condominium located between Broadway and Fifth Avenue in the Flatiron district. The ornate, Beaux-Arts edifice was erected in 1907 as a commercial building with the Holtz Restaurant located on the lower two floors, and converted to condo lofts in 1987. Its unique interiors still feature 11-foot-high, ornate, beamed and coffered ceilings. South-facing, closely-spaced windows facing the street lend a degree of light uncommon in pre-war apartment buildings.


Holtz House sits within the Ladies’ Mile Historic District, where abundant shopping and dining takes place within majestic pre-war buildings. The loft is located halfway between Union and Madison squares, each with their own bustle, flair, and attractions (Union Square offers a greenmarket on weekends). The 23rd Street station of the N/Q/R/W trains, located two short blocks to the north, offers a quick commute to both Downtown and Midtown.

Carter Horsley's Review of Holtz House

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This very handsome, 12-story, mid-block building at 7 East 20th Street between Fifth Avenue and Broadway was erected in 1907 by the owners of the Holtz Restaurant that initially occupied its bottom two floors including the splendiferous second floor with its broad expanse of extremely elegant French windows. 

The commercial building was partially converted to 14 condominium apartments in 1987." Read Carter's Full Review
