About This File

1095 Avenue Of The Americas is a 630 ft (192m) tall skyscraper in New York City, New York. It was constructed from 1972 to 1974 as headquarters of New York Telephone and has 41 floors. The building also served as the headquarters of NYNEX and Bell Atlantic. Kahn & Jacobs designed the building, which is the 61st tallest in New York. The original facade was said to be designed to resemble the relays which were commonly found inside telephones of the time. From 2006 to 2007 the tower received a $260 million renovation which upgraded the office space from Class B+ to Class A office space.[citation needed] The phone company moved its headquarters to the Verizon Building in the early 2000s, and sold off most of the building, retaining a condominium interest in floors 6-12, where Verizon maintained offices and a telephone exchange serving landlines in Midtown Manhattan. However, in 2013 the company moved its corporate headquarters back to 1095 Avenue of the Americas, following a sale of the upper floors of the Verizon Building.

Is a Landmark version MN.

I'm giving you 5 stars for this one because you always select buildings that reflect the artistic quality generally pursued by fans and model makers of SC4.
