250 West 55th Street

An exquisite welcome provided by LASA BIANCO CLASSICO™® for a New York Glass Palace

In 2013, after a five-year construction period, a 201-metre skyscraper was completed at 250 West 55th Street in New York Midtown, just a few steps away from Columbus Circle and Central Park. Designed by architects SOM (Skidmore, Owings and Merrill), the 40-storey building comprises 852,000 square feet of office space and retail outlets on the ground floor. The spacious and inviting entrance area with lobby is located on West 55th Street. For the exterior and interior of the main entrance, the planners decided to cover the otherwise fully glazed structure with large-format panels made of LASA BIANCO CLASSICO™®. The façade panels in the exterior area are 6 cm thick; the wall panels for the spacious lobby are 3 cm thick. All surfaces are polished.
