The exterior of Durst Fetner Residential’s 855 Sixth Avenue has been revealed.
Cook + Fox is the design architect. Construction on the building — which will be 41 stories and 479 feet tall — has already begun.
The fifth level of the building will have a 20,000-square-foot terrace. Two floors of retail are slated to wrap along Sixth Avenue, with 171,000 square feet to be used for office space. The building will be located between 30 and 31st Streets.
The entire project at 855 Sixth Avenue is slated to hold 570,000 square feet, which will unclude 375 rental apartments. The apartments will have a separate entrance from the office and retail components. [NY YIMBY] – Claire Moses
