Post-Grand Central (WWII Era):
1. Former Citicorp Center, 601 Lexington Ave.
The former Citicorp Center was designated a landmark just last week, making it the youngest New York City landmark building to date. Commissioned by First National City Bank and built from 1973-1978, the 910-feet-tall skyscraper is noted for its 45-degree angular roof, as well as its alternating tinted windows. Due to its unique design, it’s regarded by some as one of the most recognizable skyscrapers in New York City.
It is currently owned by Boston Properties, a real estate investment trust, which renamed it 601 Lexington Avenue.
