YEAR: 2000-2003
DISCIPLINE: ARCHITECTURE. INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE
LOCATION: NEW YORK NY

“425 fifth avenue is a mixed-use commercial and residential tower located on fifth avenue at e. 38th street in manhattan. at the client’s request, the 56-story building assumes the character of traditional new york towers and complements historic neighborhood structures. the massing of the 6-story retail and office base reflects nearby early 20th century beaux arts buildings, and the slender residential tower, with its mandated setbacks, assumes a characteristic skyscraper silhouette, with verticality emphasized by “columns” of white glazed brick. entered from a vest-pocket park designed by tom balsley, the hippodrome-shaped residential lobby is detailed in rich wood paneling and inlaid marble reminiscent of 1930s art deco interiors. two stories of amenities, including a fitness center, swimming pool and residents’ club take advantage of the terraces at the first setback level. the condominiums above have spectacular vistas uptown and downtown, including an excellent view of the nearby empire state building.” – mga
