Inspiring a New Point of View

The BankNote's Story

Built in 1909, it is fondly known by locals as the "Penny Factory," a nod to its roots as the home of The American Banknote Company, a currency printing facility, this historic structure sits prominently on a hill with extraordinary views of Manhattan.

Today the four-building, 405,000-square-foot complex is home to a variety of government (including Congressman Jose Serrano), civic and private sector tenants, office tenants, non-for-profit organizations and the arts community. Currently a site fronting the outdoor plaza is available for the construction of a fifth building to provide supporting food and retail services to the expanding BankNote community.
