160 Fifth Avenue

The historic 160 Fifth Avenue has brought 21st century sophistication – and a LEED Certified rating – to the Flatiron District's fashionable Ladies' Mile.

Thanks to a 2009 gut renovation designed by architects Montroy Anderson DeMarco (with collaboration from Moed de Armas & Shannon), the historic 160 Fifth Avenue has brought 21st century sophistication – and a LEED Certified rating – to the Flatiron District’s fashionable Ladies’ Mile. Originally designed by Robert H. Robertson, the 10-story, 100,000-square-foot tower originally dates from the 1890s, when “green building” and “LEED certification” weren’t even a twinkle in your great-grandfather’s eye.

But there’s nothing old-fashioned about 160 Fifth Avenue’s impressive list of amenities and building technologies, which include a relocated and renovated lobby to add retail frontage along Fifth Avenue, new elevators, additional retail space in the basement and on the second floor, a green roof, and restoration of the façade’s stone pillars and double-hung mahogany windows. RFR Realty also upgraded the building’s HVAC, electrical, and telecommunications systems and installed new elevators, bathrooms, and energy-efficient windows in pursuit of a LEED Certified rating for the tower.
