505 Fifth Avenue

New York, New York

Project Description

This office building design, although later abandoned, had a sculptural, high-performance glass curtain wall that slopes in both plan and section to address zoning requirements and create a strong presence on the site. The glass facade culminates into a lantern at the rooftop. The building was a total of 23 floors high, with the first two floors dedicated to retail. The design takes advantage of the views from the corner of the site which overlooks the New York Public Library and Bryant Park.
