1155 Avenue of the Americas

This Emery Roth & Sons–designed, 41–story tower offers the Durst Organization's commitment to sustainable operations and a sleek, modern architecture in one of Midtown's most important office corridors.

Designed by Emery Roth & Sons, this 41-story, 790,000-square-foot modernist masterpiece stands between West 44th and 45th Streets, just steps from Bryant Park, Times Square, and Grand Central Station. Built in 1984, the tower’s elegant black granite exterior and sleek design profile helps it stands out from the other International Style office towers that line the Sixth Avenue office corridor from 42nd Street north to Central Park South. Owned by the Durst Organization, one of New York City’s landlords most committed to advanced building technologies and sustainable operations, 1155 Avenue of the America’s two-story lobby features terrazzo floors, marble and granite walls, and a revolving art exhibition and entrances from both Sixth Avenue and West 44th Street.

Since 2001, 1155 Avenue of the Americas has been an Energy Star standout, earning the designation consistently from 2001 through 2010, when it scored 82. The building’s efficient energy performance is – in part – thanks to electric centrifugal chillers and innovative 30,000-gallon ice storage tanks that freeze overnight during low-demand hours and reduce consumption the following day when the grid is strained. The tower’s low-rise floor plates range from 21,500 to 30,000 square feet while mid- and high-rise floors are 16,000 to 17,000 square feet, respectively. Major tenants at 1155 Avenue of the Americas include Dow Jones and the law firm White & Case.
