The beautiful 630 Fifth Avenue skyscraper known officially as ‘The International Building’ or ‘45 Rockefeller Plaza’ is part of the 19-building Rockefeller Center complex in the Plaza District of Midtown Manhattan. This 41-story New York City office tower stands magnificently at 512-foot [156 m] on the western side of Fifth Avenue, between 50th and 51st Streets.
Its construction started in 1933 and was completed by 1935 from the design of The Associated Architects. The Art Décor styled class A office building is owned by Tishman Speyer Properties. It is particularly characterized by a flamboyant plaza at the east side of the main entrance which features two iconic bronze sculptures namely The Italian Immigrant and Italia. Another famous sculpture adorning the front of the building is Lee Lawrie’s Atlas.
630 Fifth Avenue has a limestone façade and Attilia Piccirilli’s Youth Leading Industry, set up to attract tenants from abroad, similar to other Rockefeller buildings like the British Empire Building and the Palais de France.
In addition to its rich history and state-of-the-art facilities, this building combines an incredible location, with great accessibility, and affordability. Some of its current tenants include; Baker Hostetler LLP occupying 118,634 SF, Mitsubishi, the Government of Slovenia, Equinox Fitness, the Italian Government Tourist Board, etc.
Clearly one of NYC’s landmark structures, The International Building is surrounded by many similarly intriguing structures such as The Palazzo d'Italia to the north. There are several office buildings owned by Cohen Brothers Realty Corp in the area with easy access through nearby public subway and transit points. Examples are the 5 Avenue-53 Street Transit Stop (E, M) just a 3-minute walk away, the slightly farther 47-50 Streets-Rockefeller Center Transit Stop (B, D, F, M) and many others.
