Owned by the Paramount Group and originally designed by Emery Roth & Sons, 900 Third Avenue’s design acknowledges the Citicorp Building and its iconic sloped roof directly across East 53rd Street: it features a triple-height glass atrium penthouse and granite and glass facade that engages Citicorp’s bands of aluminum and glass. But 900 Third Avenue is an important tower in its own right: completed in 1983, 900 Third Avenue features floor plates that range in size from 4000 to 44,000 square feet and is a three-time Energy Star award winner in 2009 (78), 2010 (77), 2012 (81).
The 32-story, Class A office tower offers 12 high-speed elevators, tenant-controlled HVAC, electrical submetering in all tenant spaces, and 18,000-square-foot floor plates on average. With panoramic views from its upper floors, 900 Third Avenue is home to a broad range of high-profile office tenants who benefit from the Paramount Group’s recent retrofit program that resulted in 900 Third Avenue’s dual LEED and Energy Star accolades.
