450 Lexington Avenue
New York, NY
450 Lexington Avenue is a 32-story office tower constructed above the Grand Central Post Office, a New York City Landmark. The Post Office was designed in 1906 by Warren & Wetmore and Reed & Stem who also designed Grand Central Terminal. The 1992 tower was designed by David Childs of SOM. SUPERSTRUCTURES provided a FISP (Local Law 11) investigation followed by construction documents, bidding assistance, and construction supervision for the restoration of both the new curtain wall clad tower and historic masonry facades. Restoration included granite and limestone repointing, stone repairs, glass replacement and patching to the cornice and columns of the Post Office.
