View commercial real estate listing for 885 Third Avenue, Lipstick Building
Located on Third Avenue and 53rd Street, the Lipstick Building looks exactly as it sounds. The Postmodern tower is shaped like a tube of lipstick, appearing to telescope in form due to zoning restrictions. The elliptical tube shape is raised on columns, which creates a two story lobby space beneath. The exterior color of the building also contributes to its name. It is clad in red Imperial granite with steel framed ribbon windows. The unique form and shape of the Lipstick Building stand out among rectangular structures that are nearby.
Bernard L. Madoff had leased space in the building previously. Current tenants include Latham & Watkins, Robinson & Cole, Smith Management Co. and Brack Capital. Office spaces feature high ceilings. Nearby subway lines are the E, M and 6 trains.
