From Beaux-Arts To Modern
Overlooking the New York Public Library and Bryant Park, on the southwest corner of 40th Street and Fifth Avenue, 452 Fifth Avenue stands tall as a New York City original. A 30-story office building, unique in every sense, it is testament that vastly different architectural sensibilities can be ingeniously and harmoniously integrated to form an award-winning corporate headquarters building of the first rank.

The property combines the 10-story landmark Beaux-Arts Knox Building (1902), with its ornate and elegant façade, and the sharply modern 30-story Tower (1984) which projects high above it.

Renowned for its river-to-river panoramic views, the Tower’s dramatically stepped north façade creates the illusion of curling into pleats and furling like a sail in the wind. At night, with bright ribbons of light appearing to flow in horizontal waves beneath the windows, the Tower becomes one of the city’s most recognizable and alluring sights.
