17 State Street Building, New York

 

Standing 42-storeys and over five hundred feet high in the bustling Financial District of Manhattan is the 17 State Street building. The unique structure, most notable for its curved façade, was designed by Emery Roth and Sons, and was completed in 1988.


The lower floors of the office building contain the New York Unearthed, which is an urban archeology museum that features over two million artifacts and historical pieces from local excavation sites.

New York Unearthed used to be a concession to the New York Landmarks Preservation Commission.
In addition to the museum, 17 State Street is home to the US offices of Fidessa, which is a finance company taking up the 21st, 33rd, 35th and 42nd floors; management consulting firm Opera Solutions, which has offices in several countries including London, Paris, New Delhi and Shanghai; managed services support company IPsoft, with offices at the 10th, 12th and 14th floors; and the offices of Georgeson Shareholders on the 28th storey.
