Foster + Partners wins competition to design 650,000-sf office tower on Manhattan’s Park Avenue
After a six-month international competition, London-based Foster + Partners, led by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Norman Foster, was selected by L&L Holding Co. and Lehman Brothers Holdings to design a 650,000-sf office tower at 425 Park Avenue in the Plaza District of Manhattan. The building will be the first full-block office development in the area in nearly a half-century, and will be situated along Park Avenue’s doublewide boulevard. L&L Holding anticipates construction will begin in 2015.
