880 Third Avenue
|Location:||New York, NY|
|Architect:||Moed de Armas & Shannon|
|Client:||Jack Resnick & Sons|
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.
