New York Stock Exchange
Historic Facade and Roof Rehabilitation
Designed by George B. Post and featuring distinctive exterior sculpture by John Q. A. Ward, the ten-story Georgia marble facade of 18 Broad Street has become an icon of United States finance. The first two stories of the neo-classical building form a podium for a colonnade of six massive Corinthian columns set between two rectangular pilasters. Within the pediment, Ward’s famous relief figures depict American commerce. Completed in 1903, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is a National Historic Landmark.
As weathering and age caused components to deteriorate, NYSE decided that it was time to implement a comprehensive and lasting maintenance and restoration plan for the emblematic building. They asked Hoffmann Architects + Engineers to design a solution.
