A dramatically sited but otherwise undistinguished corner building located opposite the famed Lipstick Building, 880 Third Avenue benefited from a 2010 base-level re-cladding that opened up the first two floors for retail as well a façade reclad with aluminum panels and replacement of windows.  The result is a crisp, attractive structure that addresses the street directly.
