On the site of the former Taystee bakery, a new 350,000 square foot Class A, LEED-certified, state-of-the-art life sciences building will rise.

The Taystee Lab Building is the next phase in the development of the 1.1 million square foot Manhattanville Factory District being created by the Janus Property Company. The first two phases, the Mink Building and the Sweets Building, are 100% complete and fully-leased. The third phase Malt House is currently under construction.  

At the intersection of West 126th and 127th Streets, the Taystee Lab Building will complement Columbia University’s and City College’s extraordinary campus expansions and connect to the historic excitement of the 125th Street arts and culture corridor. It will share its 21st century vibe with the industrial fabric of the Factory District and will bring a new level of activity to one of New York’s most exciting neighborhoods.


Our design celebrates the industrial context while inviting tenants, neighbors, pedestrians & cyclists to enjoy this new dynamic urban hub.
