Verizon Relocates Corporate Headquarters in Lower Manhattan

Verizon Communications relocated its corporate headquarters to 140 West St. in Lower Manhattan.

During the September 11 attacks, the former 7 World Trade Center building collapsed against the south and east sides of 140 West St., the 32-floor structure built in 1926 as the headquarters for New York Telephone. The Art Deco building was riddled with gaping holes and filled with debris and water. Verizon spent four years carefully restoring the original architectural elements and upgrading the building's systems and amenities. The company is relocating its headquarters from 1095 Avenue of the Americas to the Lower Manhattan location.
