Banco Santander U.S. headquarters under construction
Construction is underway, and expected to be completed in September, on a 100,000 square foot, 20-story office tower in Manhattan which will house the U.S. headquarters of Banco Santander, as well as Banco Santander Puerto Rico and other Spanish entities. Standing adjacent to the landmark Lever House, the building is near two other noteworthy examples of architectural achievement: the Seagram Building and the New York Racquet Club.
Rising as an 80-foot-square tower from a 1-story, 80- by 100-foot lobby base, and stepping back at the seventh, eleventh, and fifteenth floors, the structure will be capped by a 45- by 70-foot mechanical floor with a 26-foot-high metal mansard roof. The building is steel frame with poured concrete over steel decking, and employs two separate facades of contrasting gray, thermal-finished granite, blue-green glass, and stainless steel. Entrance to the building is through a 4,000 square foot lobby finished in granite to match the exterior.
Architect for the project is Rogers, Burgun, Shahine & Deschler, Inc. (RBSD), with Clark Tribble Harris & Li consulting architect. Construction manager is Humphreys & Harding, Inc.
