675 Third Avenue

675 Third Avenue, located at 42nd Street and Third Avenue, continued the Durst-led redevelopment of Third Avenue in Midtown East. Representative of over 20 years of investment in the area, the 32-story building was completed in 1966. Steps from Grand Central Station, features of the property include 2,200 square feet of green roofs and a wide variety of office configurations, prebuilt layouts and terrace opportunities for tenants to enjoy. 

In keeping with The Durst Organization's commitment to providing tenants with premier office properties, 675 Third Avenue recently underwent a major window replacement as part of its capital improvement program. The new windows improve the comfort level of tenants and significantly increase the energy efficiency of the building envelope. Original perimeter induction units were also replaced to ensure greater efficiency and offer better controls. Other significant renovations recently completed include a new plaza with a zinc green wall feature, an updated entrance, refurbished lobby, and renovated elevator cabs.
