Reimagined for
today’s business
Designed and completed by MdeAS Architects in 2016, 1221 Avenue of the Americas has revitalized and enhanced the building’s expansive public spaces for tenants, their guests, and the public at large. The lobby’s bold, contemporary redesign represents Rockefeller Group’s ongoing commitment to maintaining the building’s prominence and high standards.
The Entrance
Multiple contemporary entryways, both lofty and spacious, invite tenants and visitors from the Avenue of the Americas, as well 48 and 49th Streets, or direct from the Rockefeller Center Concourse. Each entrance boasts dramatic north and south views through the building’s central corridor, which is bathed in natural light.
The Lobby
Recent modernization includes a top-to-bottom redesign and an inspiring installation by artist Mark Bradford. Removal of non-structural interior elements allows enhanced light into the reception area, where two additional guest services desks welcome and accommodate visitors at any hour.
The Elevators

The Finishes

Outdoor side-street plazas enhance the tenant and visitor experience of the building and the neighborhood. Features include a soothing, dark-rock waterfall park, and an outdoor plaza which seats on all four sides of the building for quiet time or team lunches.
