599 Lexington Avenue

599 Lexington's green aspects earned the building LEED-EB (Existing Building) 2.0 honors, and their seamless integration into the building's distinctive design is as good an advertisement for the idea of LEED-EB as is imaginable.

Two instantly identifiable visual signatures make 599 Lexington Avenue instantly recognizable from the outside — its signature pale-blue facade, and “Salto Nel Mio Sacco,” a painted sculpture by the modern artist Frank Stella that shines out from 599 Lexington’s striking two-story glass lobby. Add in the striking Subway entrance just outside 599 Lexington, and it’s three. But it’s what’s on the inside of 599 Lexington that makes the 50-story tower one of the sustainable stars of Midtown East.

599 Lexington’s green aspects earned the building LEED-EB (Existing Building) 2.0 honors, and their seamless integration into the building’s distinctive design is as good an advertisement for the idea of LEED-EB as is imaginable. Though 599 Lexington was built in 1986, its 47 stories of class A office space have an airy openness that’s very 2009, and are enveloped, naturally, in state-of-the-art low-e glass curtain walls.

An array of energy-efficient building management systems complete 599 Lexington’s passel of sustainable aspects. Blue on the outside and green on the inside, 599 Lexington Avenue is as noteworthy for its ahead-of-the-curve commitment to sustainability as it is for its ahead-of-its-time aesthetics.
