The Herald examiner building

Designed by Julia Morgan for William Randolph Hearst, The Herald Examiner Building is an architectural icon on Broadway. Preserving its historic nature, while paying homage to the original spirit of its design, The Georgetown Company worked with Gensler to transform the iconic Building into a distinctly modern workplace environment and unparalleled retail and restaurant opportunity.

Over 90% leased, the Herald Examiner Building has only two ground floor retail or restaurant spaces remaining. These unique corner spaces, with soaring ceilings, grand arched windows, the ability to create outdoor seating, and located directly across the street from both the Proper Hotel and the Hoxton Hotel are ideally suited for a dynamic restaurant.
