The American Thread Building

260 West Broadway, New York, NY, 10013 | Tribeca

The American Thread Building Condominium located 260 West Broadway in Tribeca Manhattan is a wonderfully historic Pre-war building built in 1894, deep with unique architectural detail and history.

Designed with 11 floors in a renaissance revival style by architect William B. Tubby the building was initially owned by the Wool Warehouse Company.

The American Thread Company later took over the building in 1907 to where the building eventually became known as The American Thread Building and still bares it name today.

The American Thread Building Condominium was converted into a residential condominium consisting of 11 floors and 52 apartments in 1983. With a sophisticated and exquisitely restored tiled entryway, standing in front of the building gives one the feeling of awh and admiration of the detail and level of work in the granite columns, black iron gates and mosaic tile. With its broad and very impressive facades curve from Beach Street into West Broadway, its arched windows on its first floor and the first two floors have broad white limestone banding against the red brick further capped with white limestone rich in detail work to look like crown molding make all stop and take notice. With far more detail that’s too much to list here.

The American Thread Building Condominium is arguably one of the most notable and familiar historic Tribeca condominiums.

The apartments feature spacious and unique loft like floor plans, high ceilings large oversized windows that are renovated to the finest of today’s finishes, modern appliances and latest technology.

The building amenities include 24 hour doorman, a roof garden, a roof top gym and health club, a bicycle room, and basement storage.

The American Thread Building Condominium at 260West Broadway is a fantastic location at the Northern part of Tribeca that affords you easy access to much of Downtown Manhattan as you are close to the restaurants, nightlife and shopping, Soho, Greenwich Village, public transportation, the Hudson River Waterfront that makes downtown living so attractive and quick easy access to the Holland Tunnel.
