Located next to Grand Central Terminal, this 77-story, Class-A office tower is an iconic addition to midtown Manhattan. Completed under budget and ahead of schedule, this terra cotta and glass tower soars just over 1400 feet tall, the second tallest office tower in NYC at time of completion, and features 4 tapering blocks that interlock and end at different heights and a retail podium at the base.
