Famous for its iconic “composition” notebooks with the mottled black and white covers, along with stationery and paper products, the former F.L. Russell Corporation opened its doors on this site in 1936 and remained proprietors of the property until the early 1960s. 

Today, the 14,000 square-foot open floor plan boasts soaring ceilings that reach 28 feet, laced together with steel girders and skylights. Moveable walls and floor-to-ceiling curtains can section off the space, depending on the event, or the entire space can be set up loft-style. SPAF offers a working sound stage equipped with lighting, state-of-the-art sound system, ample seating for 500 and commercial kitchen. For wedding parties, private dressing areas with full bathrooms. And our team of event planners can work with you to create the party of your dreams, with a nearly endless source list of props and décor to suite any request.
