About the Building
The building’s facade is a replica of the Danish Pavilion at the 1962 World Fair held in New York City’s Flushing Meadow, now home to Citifield, the ballpark of the amazin’ New York Mets, and the “Billie Jean King U.S. Tennis Center”, site of the U.S. Tennis Open.
The building was designed and still partially owned by the estate of Werner Valeur-Jensen, a renowned Danish architect. The building was originally constructed in the early 1970’s as the headquarters of Cadbury-Schweppes, the candy and soft drink company. Commander Schweppes maintained his office on the third floor of the building and entered through a private staircase that still exists today.
If you happen to find yourself in Stamford, CT, and would like to visit, please stop by and enjoy a glass of Schweppes ginger ale on us. Coffee is also available. Hope to see you soon!
