610 Lexington Avenue is a 63-story iconic tower that will house an exclusive international 7 star hotel with interior design by Denniston Architects and will be topped with a few floors of high end condominium apartments. The façade designed by Foster and Partners is a delicately faceted curtainwall that captures the reflections of the city and compliments the Seagram Building, the adjacent Modernist Land-mark. The slender tower is located above a glass podium responding to the urban context that contains a 9 story entrance atrium.
