Within the administrative records, there are tenant files, monthly property statements, subject files, mortgage and loan records, and employee related files for the property. Correspondence details the deal arranged to purchase the property, construction of the office building, business activities concerning to 300 Park Avenue, and everyday operations at the premises. In the financial records, there are general files, financial statements, paid bills, and bank account materials about fiscal matters. Both the construction records and drawings illustrate the building's design by Emery Roth & Sons and modification for tenants.

Arranged by type

Built on part of the site of Columbia University's campus from 1857-1897, the twenty-five-story office building is located on the western side of Park Avenue between 49th and 50th Streets. The property was obtained in 1951 through an exchange with Webb & Knapp, the Court Square Building at 2 Lafayette Street for the 300 Park Avenue residential building and two adjoining properties. They also leased the air rights from New York Central (Railroad) System for this structure. After two years of negotiations, the tenants agreed to leave the seventeen-story apartment house and construction began with Emery Roth & Sons serving as architects. Completed in 1955, it is often referred to as the Colgate-Palmolive Building after one of its primary tenants. Other prominent firms leasing space were Barclays Bank of New York (formerly Chemical Corn Exchange Bank), Cerro Corporation, Proskauer, Rose, Goetz & Mendelsohn, Kaiser Services (formerly Henry J. Kaiser Company), Phelps Dodge Corporation, Crane Co., Galow Restaurant, Inc. (formerly Chandler's Restaurant, Inc.), and West Merchant Bank Ltd. When most of the Uris buildings were incorporated in 1960, this building remained in under the family's private ownership. It was purchased in 1999 by Tishman Speyer Properties from the Uris estate and subsequently renovated.

Subleases and under-subleases incorporate similar information as well as consent from the landlord for the arrangement. Often appended to the leases are blueprints, exhibits, and other plans of tenant space illustrating Emery Roth & Sons' construction drawings, furniture arrangements, electrical diagrams, floor plans, and interior design layouts. All of these leases are for entire floors, portions of floors, store locations, mezzanine areas, or basement levels.

6.1.2. Monthly Property Statements, 1951-1996, About 30,000 items (43.4 linear feet)

PAYROLL RECORDS RESTRICTED UNTIL JANUARY 1, 2080

Monthly property statements issued by the five firms who administered the property over 45 years. Douglas L. Elliman & Co. began in 1951 and was followed by Cross & Brown Company, Abrams Benisch Riker, Inc., Colliers ABR, and finally Cushman & Wakefield, Inc. Each of these organizations provided statements about the commercial operation of the 300 Park Avenue building. The monthly property statements contain financial reports, paid invoices, payroll records, tenant information, and related management documents. In general, the monthly financial reports provide information on income, expenditures, taxes, billing, collection, tenant charges, and related fiscal matters. From 1955 to 1989, Cross & Brown Company issued four different reports for the property: Statement of Receipts, Statement of Owners Account, Agency Building Transaction, and Budget Operating. Paid invoices document the amount spent on taxes, utilities, professional services, cleaning, construction, building maintenance, supplies, security, landscaping, and other operating expenses. In the payroll records, there are reports, weekly registers, tax forms, union contributions, and other documents that explain the compensation and benefits earned by employees of the building. Receipts of tenant charges indicate how much individual lessees paid for steam and water usage, electricity, air conditioning, heating, repairs, elevator operation, and the overtime services of electricians, engineers, and mechanics. There are also tenant rental adjustments, escalations, and property rolls detailing the square feet occupied and individual tenant expenditures.

6.1.3. Subject Files, 1950-1999, About 1,500 items (2.2 linear feet)

Consists of correspondence, corporate records, management agreements, service and maintenance contracts, construction documents, and other materials related to the construction and operation of 300 Park Avenue. These items describe administrative activities, building management operations, structural maintenance, local law compliance, lease discussions, inspections, and the initial construction of the office building. The correspondence addresses most of these subjects, particularly dealings with building management firms, potential commercial tenants, contractors, city inspectors, service providers, New York Central Railroad, and the residents of the original apartment house at 300 Park Avenue. In accordance with their rights to easement areas, New York Central Railroad wrote to the Urises with their approvals or modifications to the plans and specifications for the new twenty-five-story building and demolition work. Letters between the Uris office, residential tenants, and apartment management company depict the discussions and final agreement concerning relocation of those living in the apartments intended for destruction. In the corporate records, there are appraisals, certificates of title, employee authorizations, business certificates, deeds, insurance papers, purchase statements, and documents about changes to the corporate entities controlling the property. Agreements with Douglas L. Elliman & Co., Cross & Brown Company, and Abrams Benisch Riker, Inc. illustrate the management and leasing services provided by each firm as well as the fees charged. The service contracts with National Cleaning Contractors, Inc., Prudential Building Maintenance, Consolidated Edison, Autocall Metro Inc., Benjamin Harkavy, Lansdell Protective Agency, Inc., Spaeth Design, Tele Dynamics, Walsh Associates, Ltd., and others portray the everyday upkeep of the building. These agreements and supporting documentation demonstrate the cleaning services, landscaping, utilities, elevator service, security, waste removal, light replacements, exterminating services, decorations, coffee service, window washing, and other maintenance issues at 300 Park Avenue. Alongside these service contracts are agreements with contractors, including Arch Electric Inc., Compliance Management, Inc. (CMI), Consolidated Environmental Services, Inc., Jerard Offen Associates, Inc., Manhattan Cooling Towers, Inc., Millar Elevator Industries, Inc., Remco Maintenance Corporation, and Rosenwach Tank Co. Inc., for repairs and renovations on the building. They explain electrical work, asbestos removal, lobby wall repairs, passenger elevator improvements, curtain wall refinishing, water tank replacement, window repairs, and the installation of a new cooling tower. Also included are records regarding the labor and materials needed to fulfill local law requirements for fire safety systems, sprinklers, emergency lighting, elevator recall, anti-bombing measures, communication systems, and access signage. In addition to the contracts about the engineering and construction services required for compliance, there is correspondence and other materials about the Local Law 5 provisions, New York City Department of Building permits, inspections, and violations. Besides these agreements regarding the property's upkeep, there are records pertaining to the original building construction. A building contract, wall agreement, easement agreements with New York Central Railroad, floor plans of the apartment house, and lists of residential tenants reveal a few of the issues surrounding the project. Finally, the sub-subseries also contains a certificate of occupancy, proposed leases, projected financial statements, schedule of leases, equipment information, studies, publicity, and reports of building inspections for condition, repairs, and code compliance.

Subseries 6.2. Correspondence, 1948-1999, About 4,200 items (6.08 linear feet)

Primarily correspondence concerning the deal arranged to purchase the property, construction of the office building, business activities concerning to 300 Park Avenue, and everyday operations at the premises. Correspondence with the Knott Brothers, Webb & Knapp, Ivor B. Clark, Inc., lawyers, and the Urises explains the complicated acquisition and financing of the land that 300 Park Avenue eventually stood on. Once the property was obtained, letters between the residents in the existing apartment building and Uris representatives negotiated the disputes arising from the demolition plans. Related communications with the New York Rent Commission, lawyers, and the management company discuss the zoning regulations for use and occupancy, income generated by the apartment house, and relocation of tenants. After the settlement of matters surrounding the previous dwelling, the correspondence with Emery Roth & Sons, Architects and the New York Central Railroad System illustrates the design process for the new office building that necessitated consideration of the railroad's easement requirements and approvals. A limited amount of the materials in the subseries from subcontractors, manufacturing companies, Uris Brothers' staff, New York City officials, and other interested parties further describe the building's construction. Topics addressed include demolition work, architectural job specifications, building permits, installations, purchase orders, progress meetings, inspections, and payments for labor and materials.

Correspondence on the business activities involving 300 Park Avenue involves tenants, insurance, finances, corporate matters, employees, and other issues. Letters define the commitments made to the tenants in the leases and modification agreements for professional services and maintenance. Assorted memorandums deal with rent, negotiation of lease terms, alterations to premises, repairs, utilities, security, fire safety systems, inspections, tenant charges, and further responsibilities. Communications about insurance fall into two types, policy information and claims. Documents from Fox & Pier, Inc. and other firms list the terms of policies, recommendations for coverage, payment of premiums, and liability question. The insurance claims paperwork has forms, accident reports, notices, wage verifications, costs for repair of damaged property, lawsuits, settlement agreements, and supporting documentation. Claims were made for personal injury, wrongful death, and damage caused by construction, machinery breakdowns, fires, vehicles, leaks, weather, and a pipe bomb explosion in 1970. Correspondence on monetary matters covers investment accounts, building stock shares, taxes, audits, estimated income, appraisals, brokerage transactions, bank fees, balance sheets, and financial statements. There are also letters and meeting notes on the funding of the building in relation to mortgages, stock shares, building loans, agreements, refinancing, and payment of debts. Among the financial institutions represented by these records are Irving Trust Company, Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, Greenwich Savings Bank, Bankers Trust Company, Chemical Bank, Chemical Mortgage Company, Manhattan Savings Bank, and the Internal Revenue Service. Corporate papers, business certificates, Dun & Bradstreet reports, records from Harold Uris's estate, and office correspondence describe actions by the Uris organizations controlling the property. Communications about the employees detail staff changes, payroll, references, unemployment rules, workers compensation insurance, labor laws, state regulations, and union agreements. In addition to these documents on the business activities associated with 300 Park Avenue, there are publicity materials, news releases, subscriptions, and letters from real estate associations.

The subseries also has correspondence on the everyday operations of the office building, from the actions of the management company to the services provided to the tenants. Letters between Cross & Brown Company, Cushman & Wakefield, Inc., Abrams Benisch Riker, Inc., and the Uris staff feature the management agent's duties. Under the agreements with the Urises, the activities of building management firms encompassed assessment of tenant charges, rent collection, leasing, payment of invoices for operating expenses, providing financial statements, handling tenant complaints, and related matters. Accompanying topics addressed in these missives include mortgage, property valuations, taxes, compliance with New York City ordinances, security, rent adjustments, employees, insurance, utilities, accidents, and upkeep of the premises. The correspondence, contracts, and invoices dealing with National Cleaning Contractors, Inc., Prudential Building Maintenance, New York Central Steam, Consolidated Edison, New York Telephone, Otis Elevators, Ben Harkavy, Landsdell Protective Agency, and Union Towel Supply chronicle the professional services offered to the commercial tenants. Subjects discussed include cleaning service, utilities, elevators, landscaping, fire safety, security, inspections, lighting, paper supplies, mall plantings, exterminating service, waste removal, holiday decorations, and tenant complaints. The rest of the correspondence focuses on the building structure itself. There are documents from architects, engineers, contractors, manufacturing companies, and government officials. They describe the repairs of damage, renovations, asbestos removal, replacement of equipment, painting, waterproofing, furnishings, and other improvements at 300 Park Avenue. In addition, there are contracts, supply quotes, purchase orders, invoices, disbursement orders, specifications, inspection reports, about the labor, materials, and work used for these maintenance activities.
