One Hanson Place

Info

One Hanson Place, originally built as the headquarters for the Williamsburgh Savings Bank, belongs to the historic legacy of New York City. Designated as a landmark for the imposing grandeur of both its architecture and interiors, this iconic building is a rich mix of Art Deco, Byzantine and Romanesque that has been fully restored to its original glory. Since 1927, it has dominated the Brooklyn skyline with its soaring four-sided clock tower punctuated by a Renaissance-style gilded dome. In the borough’s modern incarnation, One Hanson Place remains perfectly situated. Adjacent to Atlantic Terminal, Barclays Center, and Brooklyn Academy of Music at the intersection of Flatbush and Atlantic Avenues, it’s a key destination in the thriving heart of Brooklyn.

The building’s monumental public areas offer more than 40,000 square feet of commercial space. On the ground floor, the vast limestone banking hall features an ornate 63-foot vaulted ceiling and floors inlaid with 22 varieties of marble. Upstairs, a series of mezzanines overlook the banking hall. The lower level is anchored by three 64-ton doors that open to the historic bank vault. The impressive scale of One Hanson Place, along with its striking details and central location, ensure its place in the urban firmament.
