750 Third Avenue is a 35-story tower that spans a full block front of Third Avenue between 46th and 47th Streets. Constructed in 1958 by distinguished architectural firm Emery Roth & Sons, the building showcases a four-story atrium entrance composed of marble and granite. Premium boutique tower floors feature views of the East River. The expansive base floors are capable of accommodating tenants across multiple service line. 750 Third Avenue also features an abundance of amenities, including Saturday HVAC hours and a 100-car on-site parking garage. The building’s proximity to Grand Central Terminal provides access to multiple subway lines, Metro North and Long Island Railroad, making it one of the most convenient locations in the city.
750 Third Avenue was at the cutting edge of New York City architecture when it debuted in 1958 and remains an excellent example of the mid-century corporate modernism that was popular on Park Avenue north of Grand Central. Taking its cues from other designs of the period, 750 Third Avenue stands as an object in space with its various setbacks introducing a cascading effect, while the upward sweep of the vertical steel beams makes the building’s mass appear to dematerialize.
Prior to the 1950s, Third Avenue was dominated by the famed IRT Third Avenue Line – better known as the Third Avenue El. Closed and dismantled on Third Avenue by 1955, the removal of the El stimulated the reinvention of the district and the coming of designs like the one used for 750 Third Avenue, featuring abundant sunlight and views of the street.
