The Haas Building has a fascinating history. The building was originally owned by Abraham Haas of San Francisco; president of Haas, Baruch, & Company. The structure was made to be one of the finest and most modern buildings of the time. The building was constructed in the year 1915, built with the latest steel frame and absolutely fireproof. Architectural firm Morgan, Walls & Clements designed this 12-story terra cotta business structure attractively facing the street with a frontage of 55 feet (17 m) on Broadway by 150 feet (46 m) on Seventh. The building was 50 by 75 feet (23 m) on the ground floor as well as the basement. The Haas Building was completed early 1915.
The interior woodwork was made in solid mahogany; the corridors were floored with marble with seven-foot marble wainscoting. The floor, walls and ceiling of the lobby were also made with marble. Including the three high-speed elevators that were installed, fixtures and interiors were said to have cost approximately $100,000. In contrast the 2009 renovation cost over $20,000,000 and took almost 5 years to complete.
The building had been given a complete makeover in the 1970s, with the classic exterior lost to brown metal panels. While much of the exterior brick and detail work was removed, the pieces around the entryway survived, though they were heavily damaged. In addition, the top two floors of The Haas Building will be the home of the Haas PH, a multi-functional private event space. The 16,000-square-foot (1,500 m2) space has a modern feel with touches of its illustrious 100+ year history throughout.
