1271 Avenue of the Americas named a Best Tall Building by CTBUH
Award | April 2022
The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat honors the modernization of the former Time & Life Building with the Award of Excellence in the renovation category.
Recognizing projects that advance the art and science of tall building renovation, the award also takes note of sustainability and positive community impact.
With its new high-performance curtain wall, 1271 Avenue of the Americas achieves significant energy savings while preserving the character of the original facade. At ground level, the design restores and revitalizes the landmarked lobby and transforms the plaza into an inviting, human-scaled public space. These sensitive but highly effective alterations give new life to the building's iconic identity.
