About 1095 Avenue Of The Americas
1095 Avenue Of The Americas is a 630 ft (192m) tall skyscraper in New York City, New York. It was constructed from 1972 to 1974 as headquarters of New York Telephone and has 41 floors. The building also served as the headquarters of Bell Atlantic. Kahn & Jacobs designed the building, which is the 61st tallest in New York. From 2006 to 2007 the tower received a $260 million renovation which upgraded the office space from Class B+ to Class A office space. The phone company moved its headquarters to the Verizon Building but retained offices, and a telephone exchange serving landlines in Midtown Manhattan, on floors 6-12. Other major tenants as of late 2008 include insurance giant MetLife (whose name is outside above the entryway), law firm Dechert LLP, iStar Financial, Royal Bank of Scotland, and Centerline Capital.
