Deutsche Bank Center (formerly Time Warner Center), one of New York’s most notable mixed-use developments, exemplifies the concept of a “city within a building.” Its twin glass-clad towers, joined at podium level, house an eclectic mix of uses including retail, CNN television studios, performance venues for Jazz @ Lincoln Center, offices, luxury hotel rooms, condominiums, parking, and direct subway access.

The complex’s unique form responds directly to its prominent urban context. The void between the soaring towers helps visually restore the 59th Street corridor, blocked since the 1950s, while the podium’s curving façade traces a traffic circle at Central Park’s southwest corner.

The ground-level arcade of shops creates a transparent public room — an effect heightened by patterns in the marble floor that visually extend the sidewalk and street grid into the building through its glass facade.
