Prominently situated in the heart of Midtown Manhattan in the Rockefeller submarket, the 1177 Avenue of the Americas business center is located in a Class A building of extraordinary stature. Built in 1992 and formerly known as the Americas Tower, the property underwent a major renovation program in 2012. Its dramatic 60 feet-high lobby has elegant flamed, polished granite floors and walls, and burnished steel and glass décor. Externally, the façade has a curtain wall of polished coral granite and gray aluminum panels. A conference center on the top two floors offers breathtaking views of New York. The tower boasts a prestigious list of tenants. Corporate neighbours include leading names in media, publishing, finance and international law firms. Midtown Manhattan is the busiest single commercial district in the United States and home to the majority of the city's skyscrapers, including the iconic Empire State and Chrysler Buildings.
