The Sun Building at 280 Broadway, is located on the east side of Broadway between Chambers and Reade Streets. The former A.T. Stewart Store was one of the most influential buildings ever erected in New York City, as its style, materials, use, and location helped determine the course of architecture and commerce in the City. In 1846, Alexander Turney Stewart opened New York's first department store. As the first Italianate commercial building in New York, it established what would become the style of choice for hundreds of stores and warehouses erected through the succeeding decades. In 1917, the New York Sun Newspaper bought the building, giving it the name by which it is referred to today. The facade rehabilitate required hand selection of each marble component from marble quarry in Georgia. Marble columns, cornices, pilasters and capitals were custom made to match existing. Cast iron columns and decorative components were replicated and replaced. The project was awarded a Lucy G. Moses Preservation Award in 2020 by the New York Landmarks Conservancy.
