Description
• Developer: Solomon Equities and A. Alfred Taubman
• Architect: Kohn Pedersen Fox and Schuman, Lichtenstein, Claman & Efron

• The building incorporates its design into the facades of three smaller older landmarked 5th Avenue buildings. The buildings include the former Rizzoli Building and the former Coty Building.

• The original design called for a sloping skyscraper due to the small space of land occupied by the landmarked Rizzoli and Coty Building. The building was redesigned when it turned out that the top floors would end up being too small.

• Construction started during the 1980's economic boom but opened in 1991 during the economic downturn leaving 386,000 of the buildings 545,000 square feet empty.
