The Citigroup Center office tower in New York City’s midtown Manhattan is located at 53rd Street between Lexington Ave. and Third Ave.  An engineering challenge, it was built in 1977 as the headquarters of Citibank and was originally known as Citicorp Center.  This distinctive building was renamed 601 Lexington Ave. in 2009 and is currently owned by Boston Properties.

Designed by architect Hugh Stubbins and structural engineer William LeMessurier in the early 1970’s, the skyscraper is 915 feet tall and is one of the top ten tallest buildings in New York with 59 floors and 1.3 million square feet of office space.
