Rendering Revealed For 1100 Avenue Of The Americas’ Glass Recladding, In Midtown

Preparations are underway for the glass recladding of 1100 Avenue of the Americas, a 15-story office building located across from Bryant Park at the corner of West 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue. Brookfield Properties is the current developer of the 386,190-square-foot structure, whose renovations include the replacement of its old reflective glass façade with a lighter, more transparent curtain wall on all sides. Kohn Pedersen Fox is the designer of the new envelope. Once reopened, the structure will yield 357,940 square feet of commercial office space in addition to 11,239 square feet of ground-floor retail area. Aecom Tishman is the general contractor.

A new rendering was spotted at the site, where black netting and scaffolding completely shroud the superstructure. The original glass is still in place, but an exterior hoist has been affixed to the northern elevation on the temporarily closed pedestrian plaza, and all retail tenants on the ground floor have already moved out.

The building’s floor plates measure around 25,000 square feet apiece, and the structure will be capped with a rooftop terrace for future occupants with views of Bryant Park and the surrounding cityscape. Access to the B, D, F, M, and 7 train is conveniently located just across the street. An abundance of food options are scattered throughout the vicinity, as well as a Whole Foods Market at the base of Salesforce Tower across from Bryant Park at 1095 Avenue of the Americas.

The renovation and revamp of 1100 Avenue of the Americas is slated for completion by the end of 2020, as indicated on the construction board.
