1095 Avenue of the Americas

As common in office construction built in the 1970s, 1095 Avenue of the Americas was faced with an aging, out-of-date façade and energy systems while its sleek, modern neighbors attracted all the attention – and coveted tenants. The mostly-steel superstructure was sound, so instead of demolishing the building, it was stripped to its frame and refitted with up-to-date mechanical and cladding systems, making the building at home once again amongst its Sixth Avenue neighbors.
