Located in Columbus Circle in the heart of Manhattan, 5 Columbus Circle (1790 Broadway) is a landmark building that rounds the corner at 58th street with an elegant bull nose.
In 1911, the U.S. Rubber Company bought a plot at the southeast corner of 58th Street and Broadway and commissioned as architects Carrere & Hastings, then just finishing their monumental building for the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street. The architects used Vermont marble throughout the structure. There is delicate carved marble ornament covering all the lower floors. The lobby ceiling is 17 feet high and artfully decorated with griffins and dental moldings elegantly restored by Richard Rice Architects.
Today the tenant roster is filled with large nationally known tenants such as Columbia University, Fordham University, and Columbia Artists Management who enjoy the combination of pre-war elegance, sweeping views of central park from the upper floors, an impeccably run building, and the prestige and convenience of Columbus Circle.
We invite you to discover 5 Columbus Circle (1790 Broadway) and all that the area has to offer.
