505 Fifth Avenue

On the corner of Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street, international architects Kohn Pederson Fox have created an office tower befitting its storied location. Its façade is composed of angular plates of luminous glass and, in the lobby, a museum-quality light installation by artist James Turrell creates an inventive, inviting, and visually compelling foundation for 275,000 square feet of office space.

The building received the coveted America’s Property Award in association with Bloomberg Television in the Best Mixed Use Development USA category.
