The tall, sleek Solow Building, located near the southeast edge of Central Park, was designed by well-known architect Gordon Bunshaft of the firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the same architect behind the Lever House. Nearby is the General Motors Building, which is the only other structure in the immediate area that competes with the Solow Building’s 50 floors. The north and south sides of the Solow Building flare out dramatically, an unexpected move within a solid, planar city block.
The Solow Building offers Class A office space and is home to many law firms and financial companies, including Bank of America and the US Headquarters of Natixis, as well several private equity firms such as Highland Capital Management, Silver Lake Partners and Apollo Management. Amenities include a double-volume trading floor, garage parking, retail, and restaurant Brasserie 8 1/2 is located below ground. Tenants on upper floors also enjoy spectacular views north through Central Park. The Solow building is located near several major subway lines, including the F, N, R, Q, 4, 5, and 6.
