1221 Avenue of the Americas

1221 Avenue of the Americas is prominently located in Rockefeller Center and adjacent to Times Square. This prestigious building is one of the finest office environments in Manhattan. 1221 Avenue of the Americas has an impressive lobby that has been featured in numerous movies, television shows, and commercials. The building has a conference center, which contains a 345-seat auditorium. At the top of the building, there are meeting rooms, catering facilities, and a private dining club. 1221 Avenue of the Americas has efficient office space ranging from approximately 47,000 sf (tower floors) to approximately 80,000 sf (base floors). The building has 32 passenger elevators, which ensure quick access to the office space.1221 Avenue of the Americas offers underground access to the Rockefeller Center subway station and concourse. The building is close to Penn Station, Grand Central Station, and the Port Authority Bus Terminal. 1221 Avenue of the Americas offers a range of dining options. Fine dining includes Del Friscos (steakhouse) and Oceana (seafood), while less formal dining options include Chipotle and Caf Metro. 1221 Avenue of the Americas has numerous outd. The lobby has become more open to accommodate the workforce coming to the building, which is home to Sirius XM Radio, NBC Universal and anchor tenant McGraw-Hill Companies. The MdeAS Architects-designed lobby has gone from darker walls and floors to a much brighter white paneling along with imported grey stones.

Rockefeller Group changed up how you can enter the building by adding a second entrance on West 48th Street in addition to its longstanding West 49th Street doorway. Instead of a single welcome desk in the center of the lobby, there's one each at the north and south entrances to the lobby. The southern portion of the building had previously been a relatively small entrance to the building.

50 story; center-core design; 12' ceiling height slab to slab; Amenity Description: On site restaurants [Sapporo, The Halal Guys, Morrell Wine Bar & Cafe, Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House], cafeteria, health club, conference center and the Rockefeller Center Concourse connecting to a multitude of shops and services. Direct subway access and nearby to the north entrance to Grand Central Station.

An older retail space was removed from the West 48th Street side of the property to make that new entrance possible. The old "back door" of the building has since been replaced with a new amenity retail spot: Zibetto, an Italian-style espresso bar. Mr. Guiltinan said that the strong coffee brewer was meant to be an amenity for existing tenants, potential new companies looking to move to 1221 Avenue of the Americas and the surrounding Midtown community. Rockefeller Group also commissioned artist Mark Bradford to paint two murals for the lobby. The murals face each other and stand 22 feet by 22 feet in the center hallway of the lobby.

All of the lobby work is part of the first of two phases to modernize the Nixon-era building. Next is creating a design for the sunken plaza that sits in front of the building along Avenue of the Americas.
Mr. Guiltinan said MdeAS Architects has been brought in to work on the preliminary designs of the arcade, and Peter Braus of Lee & Associates NYC has been brought in to market the retail space.
Construction Description: Steel frame, curtain wall design.
The building is close to Penn Station, Grand Central Station, and the Port Authority Bus Terminal.
