Facts

  • With its close proximity to Grand Central Station, excessive pedestrian traffic presented a major concern. In order to accomodate this, the construction company had to position the tower crane within a site setback area, and position all hoists within the footprint of the building.
  • The building's amenities include two retails spaces and a health club.
  • A large percentage to the north and south elevations comprise window units that span nearly floor to floor, with aluminium slab covers giving it a curtain wall appearance.
  • The building has a brick facade with the first four floors having Indiana Limestone with Granite trim.
  • The apartment finishes include wood floors, granite countertops, and marble bathrooms with marble banjo tops.
