Fisher Brothers complete tower lobby renovation.

Fisher Brothers has completed a transformation of the lobby and entrance of 1345 Avenue of the Americas, its iconic Midtown office tower.

The building is one of a few office towers that offers views of Central Park, so Fisher Brothers' goal was to extend the openness and light of the Park down the Sixth Avenue corridor and up through the entrance of the building.

To accomplish this, Fisher Brothers worked with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill to replace the previous white and tan marble design and create a bright, spacious and interactive lobby.

The ceiling was raised to 20 feet to emphasize verticality, and the main entrance facing Sixth Avenue was opened up and extended by 10.5 feet. A full height, 58-foot wide glass luminous wall with color-changing LED programming was installed behind the security desk, drenching the lobby in color.

Mirror-back glass walls with stainless steel detailing complement the feature wall and create soft reflections.

Locally sourced granite flooring with mica fleck finish and round aluminum column covers add a stylish touch.

The lobby renovation is part of a previously-announced $65 million capital improvement program at the building.

Upcoming plans include a brand new amenity center designed by David Rockwell and the Rockwell Group and reimagining the plaza with a new landscaping program and outdoor seating.
