BBJ Linen Takes Up Residence in Historic New York City Landmark

The national rental linen leader moves its New York office into the legendary Gorham Building.

NEW YORK, Dec. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Erected more than 100 years ago, the Gorham Building on Fifth Avenue was built as the headquarters for one of the nation's most distinguished manufacturers of silver and bronze. Now, a new tenant plans on keeping the building close to the impeccable style of its roots.


National rental linen pioneer BBJ Linen has moved into the Gorham Building, taking up residence on the eighth floor of this New York City landmark with its newest showroom. The Chicago company—the largest special event linen rental company in the United States—explains that the Gorham Building was a natural fit.

"We didn't choose this building for our new showroom just because of its location in Midtown Manhattan," said BBJ Linen President Bonnie Dannen. "The Gorham Building is a beautiful, timeless piece of American history that represents the work of a true style icon. It fits our mission perfectly, and gives us a gorgeous venue for showing off some of our best rental linen."

The final project designed by famous New York architect Stanford White—designer of Greenwich Village's Washington Square Arch—the Gorham building was built between 1904-1906 for the Gorham Manufacturing Company, and was designated a New York City landmark in 1984.

"This building was designed by an innovator in style, for innovators in style," said Dannen. "With our new showroom, we want to honor this historic building's grand tradition of representing timeless New York City sophistication."

The full address of the new rental linen showroom is 390 Fifth Avenue, Suite 812, New York, NY 10018. BBJ Linen's New York phone and fax numbers remain the same. To learn more about BBJ Linen, visit them online at
