330 Madison Avenue

After a complete overhaul in 2010 that resulted in a LEED–EB Certified rating, Vornado's 330 Madison Avenue is now one of Midtown's highest performing office buildings.

Built in 1963 on the site of the former Hotel Manhattan, 330 Madison Avenue was originally designed by Kahn & Jacobs. Vornado completely redeveloped the 39-story tower in 2010, in an effort led by architects Moed de Armas & Shannon.  The 742,000-square-foot tower offers tenants individual floor plates that range from 9200 to 38,700 square feet.

The project included a full reconfiguration of the lobby, which now features a double-height glass entrance on Madison Avenue between East 42nd and 43rd Streets. A new glass curtain wall is energy-efficient, while upgraded building and HVAC systems and LED lighting support the building’s Certified LEED for Existing Buildings rating. Even prior to the renovation, in 2008, 330 Madison Avenue earned accolades by receiving an Energy Star award with a score of 75.

330 Madison Avenue’s green program includes green cleaning, wastewater reduction, new electrical-driven high efficiency chillers with variable frequency drivers, carbon dioxide sensors, and renovated restrooms with efficient plumbing fixtures.
