1140 Avenue of the Americas rises right at the heart of Midtown’s premier corporate neighborhood. From this high profile corner of 44th Street, it’s just a short walk to Grand Central Station. A newly refurbished lobby and state-of-the-art building systems combine to create the understated elegance and remarkable efficiency of Midtown’s finest business environments.
There was a $45 Million capital improvement project – including the installation of a new glass and aluminum curtain wall system on the West and South facades on Avenue of the Americas and 44th Street. Insulating glass with special energy efficient and visual coatings will greatly improve the buildings appearance and energy efficiency. A new entrance with a glowing canopy and special signage leads the tenants and visitors to the lobby. The lobby has received new finishes including French Limestone floor and walls, an illuminated sculptural wall and ceiling, decorative stainless steel details and new lighting. In the elevator lobby, the mezzanine floor above will be removed to create better height in the area. A feature wall of dark split face volcanic stone is behind a new limestone reception desk.
