MetLife Building: 58 Stories of Class A Office Space in the Core of Midtown Manhattan

Designed in the international style, the MetLife Building was originally known as the Pan Am Building. Its 300 feet wide, precast concrete and glass facades span east-west, and are prominent from the axis of Park Avenue. In plan, the building is an elongated octagon.

The MetLife Building is positioned over the tracks to Grand Central Station, and tenants have direct access to the concourse. The building’s location provides convenient access to Metro North and Amtrak trains as well as major subway lines, including the 4, 5, 6 and 7 trains. Following its opening in the 1960s and into the 70s, a helicopter shuttle picked passengers up from the roof and provided direct service to JFK airport. However, this service was suspended in 1977 following a fatal accident.

Metropolitan Life insurance is still the main tenant of the skyscraper, and others include the Dreyfus Corporation, Barclays Weath Americas, Greenberg Traurig and CB Richard Ellis.
