Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill Architects, 780 Third Avenue was built in 1984 and is located between 48th and 49th streets. The building is clad in red granite panels that were imported from Finland. It is slightly setback from the street, creating an urban plaza that is paved with red brick and planted with a line of trees. The structure of 780 Third Avenue is comprised of a concrete frame with large X-braces, resulting in interior spaces that are free of columns and allow for more efficient office layouts. The average floor plate within the 50-story building spans 10,000 square feet.
Often referred to as “a Park Avenue building on Third,” amenities of 780 Third Avenue include a large business conference center with a 154-seat auditorium and seven conference rooms with movable walls for added flexibility. This center is free for tenants’ use. Other amenities include a messenger center, directly metered electric (for full floor tenants), and floor by floor controls for HVAC and elevators. Tenants include Tricadia Holdings LP, AARP, Axiom Capital, DeMatteo Monness, Deerfield Management Co., Hyatt Hotels, ING Investment Mgmt. and Visa.
