Located within walking distance of Grand Central Station between Madison and Fifth Avenues, 11 East 44th Street dates from 1927 and was designed by architects Shreve & Lamb. The tower – which was formerly known as the Life Extension Building – is a Class B+ office building that combines Midtown convenience with exceptional energy performance in a classic, sophisticated setting.
The 18-story, 133,000-square-foot, neoclassical Italiante 11 East 44th Street features a modern, renovated lobby, whose original barrel-vaulted ceiling was uncovered and restored. The lobby’s green, gray, and white marble walls and floors stand out against the ceiling, painted in gold. And beveled glass panes were also installed across the tower’s two-story facade windows.
11 East 44th Street is owned by ING Clairon. In 2012, the tower earned its first Energy Star award, scoring an impressive 90.
