The company describes the building as a multi-floor office opportunity for a select group of visionary companies.
Durst’s 855 Sixth Avenue will rise 41 stories and reach a height of 479 feet. There will be 171, 000 square feet of office space on floors two through six. The fourth floor will feature a partial double-height ceiling, and a grand open “town hall” area with a wide open staircase, while the fifth floor will have a 20, 000 square foot terrace.
Beginning with a dedicated entrance and capped by a roof terrace with landmark views, the office floors are designed around a central hub of activity.
Two floors of retail space will be located at the base of the building on Sixth Ave.
The building will hold a total of 570, 000 square feet of space, including 375 rental apartments. The residential area will have a separate entrance from the office and retail one.
While the offices are set to be ready for tenants by the end of 2015, the entire project will not be completed until sometime in 2016.
The building’s brochure describes the office space as follows:
“Our tools have become mobile, untethering workers from the traditional desk to migrate into collaborative spaces, where creativity and innovation are fostered. Our patterns have become more nomadic; our team structures banded by human engagement. The most productive environments are open, engaging, and supportive, allowing comfort in both creating and sharing of ideas. They are places you want to be in, not just places you are paid to be in. They are reflective and inclusive of your culture. 855 Avenue of the Americas is the opportunity for that workplace.”
The tower was designed by Cook + Fox.
