I’ve always loved how incorporated this building is with the streetscape, between the concourse and the atrium lobby; it’s always been on of my favorite features. Another aspect I love about the building is how it’s connected with the UBS building on 6th by an elevated ‘office’ overpass that covers the width of the plot.

As far as the architecture goes I like how it has the elements of an international box, yet there is a twist to it. I think buildings such as UBS, the Sheraton, and 1313 6th Avenue enhance the presence of the towers size, height, and overall presence. The coloring of the façade also helps to bring attention to the tower, and is complimented by the arch on top, which is also present at the base. I’ve always thought the AXA Center is one of Manhattan’s best fillers.
