One of New York City’s most attractive Art Deco lobbies is set to open for the first time since the 1970s.

The skyscraper at 70 Pine Street was completed in 1932 and features ornate Art Deco carvings, Native American-inspired motifs and tons of marble. However, when AIG took over the building in the 1970s, they closed off the lobby, according to Curbed.

In 2011, the Landmarks Preservation Commission landmarked both the interior and exterior of the building.

Designers Clinton & Russell and Holton & George enriched “the lower floors with stylized reliefs that rival any architectural ornamentation created during the Art Deco period in New York City,” the LPC’s wrote in their landmark designation.

Now, following a 600-unit rental conversion by Rose Associates and DTH Capital, the lobby will reopen. Leasing launches this week.
