Foster + Partners’ New Tower for 425 Park Avenue, New York

Following an international competition that involved some of the world’s most acclaimed architecture firms, Foster + Partners have been selected to design a new office tower at 425 Park Avenue, in New York, for L&L Holding Company and Lehman Brothers.

Offering sustainable office accommodation, the new building anticipates changing needs in the workplace with large, open spaces that encompass flexible use. Each of its three tiers – low, medium and high-rise – is defined by a landscaped terrace with panoramic views across Manhattan and Central Park. At street level, 425 Park Avenue will allow for a large civic plaza where works of art can be on display.

L&L Holding anticipates that the new 425 Park Avenue tower will begin being built in 2015 and to be completed by the end of 2017.
