Facts

  • Nicknamed the Lipstick Building for its shape, the tower features a pedestrian plaza surrounded by a ring of two-story granite columns that separate the Manhattan streetscape from the building's glass-enclosed nine-meter-high lobby.
  • Lipstick's "street-level experience" has been called both creative and exciting with its red granite and stainless steel collonnade.
  • The building sets itself apart from its neighbors by the elegance of its elliptical form, its striking Imperial Red granite exterior trimmed with bands of brushed stainless steel and its two-story granite colonnade and double height, glass-enclosed lobby.
