Office - Buildings
Before the pandemic, Midtown East was rezoned to modernize the area’s aging building stock, which catalyzed 6.5 million square feet of new office development over the next two decades. Join us to tour some of the new and active office developments on and surrounding Park Avenue resulting from this rezoning effort.
This walking tour will begin at 1.75 million-square-foot One Vanderbilt, the tallest office tower in Midtown (standing at 1,401 feet tall) designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by SL Green and Hines, it opened in September 2020. The project included a $220 million package of public open space and transit infrastructure improvements that will help ease congestion and overcrowding on subway platforms, improve circulation in and around the terminal, and create new, direct pathways to the regional railroads.
The tour will also highlight the Company at 335 Madison Avenue (Milstein Properties, SHoP Architects), a 350,000-square-foot vertical tech campus with an extensive amenity program, before continuing to 343 Madison (BXP, currently under construction), a 49-story, 750,000-square-foot office tower. The tour will conclude at 399 Park Avenue, a 1,800,000-square-foot office tower developed by Boston Properties.
