The Griffith Building is located in Newark, in Essex County, New Jersey, United States. The building was built in 1927 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places on May 24, 1984. The building is 15 story's and 64.01 m (210.0 ft) tall. The Griffith Piano Company erected the building as a showroom, workshop, office tower and recital auditorium. Under the direction of Mrs. Parker O. Griffith, a foundation supported by the company was responsible for the direction, support, and programming at Newark Symphony Hall.
There have been plans to convert the building along with the adjacent Hahne and Company flagship store into condo loft apartments. A joint venture called HG Jetson between the Berger Organization and Cogswell Realty Group will be converting the buildings. Along with the planned One Theater Square, and the completed Eleven 80, the restoration will significantly increase the residential population of Downtown Newark, particularly around Military Park.
