  • In front of the building is a sunken plaza facing Broadway.
  • Paramount Plaza was built as the Uris Building on the site of the old Capitol cinema theater dating from 1919.
  • The facade of dark gray glass is accentuated by narrow striping and topped by a row of openings at the top.
  • Headquarters of the firm Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu.
  • The theater was dedicated and opened as the Uris, 28 November 1972.
  • The Gershwin (then known as the Uris) was the first theatre constructed in New York City since 1928. With a seating capacity of 1,940, it presently is the largest theatre on Broadway, with the exception of the New York State Theatre at Lincoln Center and New York City Center.
