Pinnacle Award--two time winner, Operating (500,000 to 1 million sf)

After an auspicious beginning by Far Eastern developers, this lavish Post Modern-Deco granite tower was launched with much fanfare in the late 80's, came to an empty halt 3/4 finished, and then went on to completion, successful leasing and operating excellence. Financial difficulties and the discord between ownership entities were left behind and the tower just shy of 1 million square feet, twice claimed BOMA/NY honors for best operating building in its class. Featuring a dramatic, Machine-era designed crown and spire, numerous setbacks and fine detailing throughout, the tower of unpolished pink granite was sold in 2002, after winning its second Pinnacle award, to a Paramount Group-led consortium for a healthy $500 million.
