New York City Designated Landmark

Constructed in 1916 and designed by architects George A. & Henry Boehm, this building was built for the Louis H. Champ Normal School of Dancing. The asymmetrical facade of this five-storey structure has motifs inspired by the Italian Renaissance and mannerist styles. Distinctive with its tan-gray colored brick laid in diamond pattern and with its notable polychrome terra cotta adorned with classical and theatrical references, the facade ends in a colonnaded loggia with overhanging copper cornice.

Columbia Artists Management Inc., one of the world's most influential management and booking firms specializing in classical music, opera, theater and dance, acquired the building in 1959 for its headquarters and recital hall.
