Madison Avenue Building Gets New Look

 

Interior construction has started at 655 Madison Avenue in New York City, architectural firm Montroy Andersen DeMarco announced.  The 193,000-square-foot, 25-story office building at East 60th Street is undergoing a significant modernization program that will reposition it in the Plaza District marketplace.

The renovation of the building includes a new high-efficiency glass-and-granite exterior, a new lobby, new glass-walled elevator cabs, and new ceiling-mounted air-conditioning units, which yield more useable floor area for tenants. The building's life-safety systems have been upgraded to make the floors fully sprinklered. In addition, there will be new sidewalks on both Madison Avenue and 60th Street and improved prebuilt office space. A total of 75,000 square feet will be renovated.

"What's striking about the project is its scope," says Daniel Montroy, principal of Montroy Andersen DeMarco. "This renovation will reposition 655 Madison Avenue as a leading address in the Plaza District."  

The renovations will further enhance the building's amenities, which include a high-performance curtain wall offering nearly 7 feet of clear glass views and three terraced floors overlooking Central Park. There is also a manned lobby with 24/7 security access and proximity to a range of hotels, restaurants, and eight subway lines.

The owner of the building is GVA Williams. Corporate Interiors Contracting Inc. is the project's contractor.  Ambrosino, DePinto & Schmieder is the MEP engineer.
