300 Lafayette is a COOKFOX designed 85,000sf flagship retail and boutique office development located at the primary gateway to SoHo. This stunning work of architecture received unanimous approval by the Landmarks Preservation Commission in 2014. After securing all requisite entitlements by successfully navigating the NYC Uniform Land Use Review Process by obtaining approvals from City Planning, the local Community Board, the Borough President’s Office, the City Council and the Mayor’s Office, LargaVista announced a joint venture with Related. In June of 2019, a lease with Microsoft was signed for 100% of the office space. Simultaneously therewith, the joint venture between LargaVista and Related sold the building. LargaVista retains sole ownership of the fee interest in the property.
The building’s design was inspired by principles of “Biophilia”, meaning people feel good when they are connected to nature. Vast, legally accessible outdoor spaces were planted with indigenous species and are a critical element of every office floor. The 20,000sf retail space encompasses two open floors offering soaring ceiling heights and unmatched visibility with over 300 feet of frontage on three vibrant corridors.
