About the Building

The Silks Building has a storied history. For over 40 years, Scalamandre Silks used the building as a principal production facility, supplying textiles to the White House, Hearst Castle, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and other prestigious homes and institutions. During World War II, the building churned out parachutes and uniforms for the war effort.

TEI became involved with The Silks Building in 2004, with a plan to deliver unique commercial loft's to the city's small businesses and artists.  Now with over 60 tenants, the Silks Building's residents represent the unique fabric of Long Island City.
