240 Centre Street, formerly the New York City Police Headquarter building, between Broome & Grand Streets in the Nolita neighborhood of Manhattan, was built in 1905-1909 and was designed by the firm Hoppin & Koen. It housed the headquarters of the New York City Police Department from 1909-1973 and was converted into luxury residences in 1988 by the firm Ehrenkranz Group & Eckstut. Today it is one of downtown’s most iconic addresses offering residents the highest level of privacy in a historic building. Homes range from 1,000 square feet to over 6,000 with original details unlike any other property. The Police Building has a full time resident manager, concierge & doorman, a lovely fitness room and a communal garden.
