Last year, the Rudin family tapped architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill to give their 22-story office tower at 560 Lexington Avenue, between 50th and 51st streets, a makeover. As a part of that renovation, the firm updated the 6 train station entrance at the tower, transforming it into a sleek and curvy portal.

“After 33 years, we’re excited to be reimagining and enhancing 560’s public spaces for our tenants and the community,” Bill and Eric Rudin, co-vice chairmen of Rudin Management Company, said in statement after tapping SOM. “We are thrilled with SOM’s transformational and sophisticated design.”
