Harding Building was an edifice located at 147 - 151 West 35th Street in Manhattan, New York. Six stories tall, it was 66.8 by 100 feet and stood opposite the R.H. Macy & Company building. It adjoined the northeast corner of 7th Avenue (Manhattan).[1] Formerly the Hotel Sturtevant, it had been owned by Edwin Gould and associates[2] until May 1910.[1] It was remodeled by Maurice and Wolf Forman in 1921 and made into a business building. The Harding Building was purchased by new owners in July 1923. They bought the building for investment purposes.[2]

In February 1927 plans were made to replace the Harding Building with a sixteen story loft building. The property was purchased by Charles Weinstein and J. Schlessinger from Israel Karp. The design of the new structure was drawn by Gronenberg & Leuchtag, architects.[3]
