About 1271 Avenue of the Americas

The Class A office structure at 1271 Avenue of the Americas is part of New York City’s Rockefeller Center. The 48 story, 1.97 million square foot building offers tenants prestige, convenience, and superior operating systems. Completed in 1958, the building has nearly 2 million square feet of commercial office and retail space for rent.

Renowned for its prominence as an international media hub, this office tower is home to such media giants as Time, Fortune, Sports Illustrated, People, Money and other magazines. SportsNet NY is a recent addition, televising sports programming from a street level studio in the building since 2006. Average floor size in the building is 71,356 square feet for the wraparound base; tower floors are over 29,000 square feet each, with column-less floor plates.

The building has been meticulously maintained since opening in 1959, and operating systems are upgraded regularly as technology and system maintenance warrant. The attended lobby features soaring 20 foot ceilings and large murals by Josef Albers and Fritz Glamer. A lovely pedestrian plaza exhibits a large water fountain, the sculpture Cubed Curved by William Crovello, and serpentine sidewalk patterns that mimic a style found along Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana Beach.

This office tower truly stands at the heart of New York City, convenient to all. An underground concourse leads to Rockefeller Center’s famous shops. Direct subway access is available from inside the building to the B, D, F, and M trains; the building is also convenient to Grand Central, Port Authority, Penn Station and PATH NJ transit trains. A parking garage in the building provides additional commuting convenience.

The prestigious glass office building features a green glass curtain wall with generously spaced limestone-clad columns stretching up 48 floors. The landscaped pedestrian plaza, complete with its striking sculpture and water feature, makes for pleasant ingress and egress to the workspace.
