Description

The American Thread Building is located at 260 West Broadway in TriBeCa.

260 West Broadway was formerly known as the Wool Exchange Building, as its developers had hoped it would enable New York to overtake Boston as the center of the nation's wool trade. Their subsequent failure allowed the American Thread Company to move into the site, which was converted into loft-style apartments in 1980 and retains the company's name.

Residences have tall high ceilings and maintain original architectural touches; many units have been updated in recent years and boast kitchens and master bathrooms that are spacious and feature premium appliances and deluxe fixtures.

Residents of 260 West Broadway have access to amenities including an attended lobby, concierge service, a roof deck, a garden, basement storage and a health club. It is also convenient to the shops and restaurants in the surrounding neighborhood and SoHo.

Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"One of the first conversions of a large commercial building in TriBeCa to luxury loft apartments, the American Thread Building at 260 West Broadway is a very handsome structure with a curved frontage overlooking a small park.

It was erected in 1894-6 by the New York Wool Warehouse Company as the Wool Exchange Building.  It housed the American Thread Company from 1901 to 1964.  In 1979, it housed an exhibition space in which 20-year-old Keith Haring painted a mural that was rediscovered in 2007 by contractors converted the space to a triplex. " Read Carter's Full Review
