Just steps from Columbus Circle and Central Park, this elegant new tower sits on a prominent one-acre site. Changing sky conditions and the surrounding Manhattan context interact with the building’s skin, resulting in an ever-shifting visual phenomenon. SOM clad the tower in semi-reflective, low-iron vision glass and vertical fins, which together add visual depth to the surface.

This building’s strong, clear form is derived directly from its program. Composed of a two-story horizontal base and a 660-foot-tall tower, the building encompasses 852,000 gross square feet of office space and ground-floor retail. The tower is setback, providing a maximum amount of daylight, air, and views for all floors. With its large, energy-efficient windows, column-free interiors, and above-standard infrastructure, this LEED® CS Gold building offers the ultimate in modern office space.
