Cioppa Rosen completes renovation.

The scaffolds have been disassembled in the lobby of 1251 Avenue of the Americas, the former Exxon building, signaling the completion of Phase II of the building's renovated public areas. Owner, Mitsui Fudosan, commissioned the New York City based architect, space planning and design firm Cioppa Rosen Associates to create the design. "Though the lobby remains incredibly grand in volume," says CRA principal, Paul J. Rosen, AIA, "we modified the scale and enriched the original design with large granite planters and a concierge desk of Canadian granite, bronze and glass screens." Black granite was also added to the original cream walls and red terrazzo floor.

Cioppa Rosen also designed the newly renovated International Square in Washington, D.C.'s central business district, jointly owned by The Oliver Cart Company and The Equitable. The architect's assignment included the creation of separate but unified identities for the lobbies of the three-building complex and to integrate and reshape retail areas and food court. The result of this ambitious project, is an inviting public space highlighted by a dramatic two story fountain. CRA is also updating D.C.'s 1730 Pennsylvania Avenue and 1575 Eye Street for the Carr Company. According to a spokesperson, it was the success of International Square which jump-started their other renovations.
