The Everett Building at 200 Park Avenue South at East 17th Street, on Union Square in Manhattan, New York City, was designed by the architectural firm of Starrett & van Vleck and opened in 1908. Goldwin Starrett, the lead architect, had worked for Daniel Burnham for four years in Chicago, and the building reflects Burnham's functionalist philosophy. It marked the development of fireproof commercial skyscrapers with open plan interiors and simple, classical exteriors.[2]

In 1988, the Everett Building was designated a New York City landmark.[2]
