DESIGNATION REPORT CLIP:

From the NoHo Historic District Designation Report, published by the LPC in 1999:

714 Broadway (East side between East 4th Street and Astor Place)
Borough of Manhattan Tax Map Block 545, lot 8 in part (old lot 9)
Date of construction: 1896-97
Architect: Buchman & Deisler
Original owner: Stern & Schwartz
Type: Store
Style: Neo-Classical
Stories: 11
Structure/material: Steel and cast-iron frame with limestone facing

Features: Three bays; non-historic storefront and entrance to upper floors; historic
galvanized-iron store cornice projecting at the center bays survives; non-historic signage,
marquee, and lighting; arched fenestration at second and eighth stories; historic and nonhistoric
sash; bracketed balconies with balustrades at second and tenth stories; rusticated
piers; scrolled keystones; panelled spandrels; gabled window hoods at the tenth story; parapet

History: This store building was designed by Buchman & Deisler and constructed in 1896-97
for Stern & Schwartz at a time when the earlier five- and six-story loft buildings that lined
this section of Broadway were being replaced by taller commercial structures like 714
Broadway. The building was constructed with an internal connection to 716 Broadway (lot
10) at the basement level. Most records regarding this building have been lost; however, its
lot was merged with the neighboring building at 712 Broadway (lot 8 ) between 1961 and
c.1985. It is now an elevator apartment building.
