Kamber Management Company announced that Pei Cobb Freed & Partners has been engaged for the next phase of a multi-million dollar makeover of Tower 45.
Tower 45 is a modern Class A 458,446 s/f multi-tenant office building located at 120 West 45th Street in Midtown.
Kamber paid $365 million to purchase the tower at 120 West 45th Street from SL Green in 2015 .The capital improvements will include a re-imagined atrium and lobby by Pei Cobb Freed.
“We are thrilled to reintroduce Tower 45 to the New York City market and look forward to working with this esteemed award-winning architectural firm,” said Steven Levy, Managing Principal of Kamber Management Company. “Through our extensive capital improvement program, we are confident Tower 45 will be further prominently positioned as a premier office property in the Sixth Avenue corridor.”
Built in 1989 and originally designed by Swanke Hayden Connell Architects, Tower 45 is a 40-story building featuring virtually column-free floorplates ranging from 9,304 to 13,318 s/f.
The building possesses a number of physical features that enhance its status as a premier boutique office asset. Tower 45 offers numerous options for office tenants from 13,318 square foot full floors to customized pre-built suite spaces ranging from 1,500 to 6,500 s/f.
“The design concepts for the new lobby and atrium of Tower 45 will create a dynamic entry providing an architecturally distinctive passage for both tenants and visitors alike,” said Michael Bischoff, partner at Pei Cobb Freed & Partners.
“We believe the quality of the work environment for all present and future tenants will be greatly enhanced in the reimagined Tower 45.”
