The orange-rated “Eagles Building”, located at Broadway and Sheridan will be demolished with decorative terra cotta removed and re-installed as part of the new mixed use development planned for the site.
Designed in 1911 by architect Harry Hale Waterman, the building is distinctive for its series of repeating terra cotta eagles. The developer who purchased the building and his team claimed that the steel pins holding the terra cotta in place had rusted and that it was beyond repair. It was officially released by the city’s Landmarks division earlier this month pursuant to a plan to re-install the eagles.
