425 Park Avenue is a tapered, steel-frame office tower that will rise 897 feet with 41 stories. Construction began in 2015 for the first full-block office building on Park Avenue for 50 years. Located between 55th and 56th Street, its glassy design is comprised of three volumes: a seven-story base, a recessed central section, and a slender tower of offices at the top, with a sloped amenity wall and exterior metal cladding featuring a diagrid pattern. The tower features triple-height sky gardens between each volume, a 45-foot tall lobby and a 38-foot tall penthouse, as well as a two-level public restaurant. Vidaris is providing building envelope consulting for the project.
