Empire Building Challenge Award Winner
Beginning at 59th St., the most celebrated stretch of New York’s Fifth Avenue—the leafy, museum-studded gambol on the east side of Central Park—runs two-and-a-half miles to the north, stopping at 110th St in Harlem. At either end, its course is marked by a pair of major buildings: downtown, it’s the Plaza Hotel, one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks; uptown, it’s The Heritage.
Though less familiar to the average tourist, the three-tower, 600-unit complex on at the corner of Central Park North is every bit as essential to its urban surrounds as its more famous pendant in Midtown. And now, thanks to DEXTALL, one major chunk of The Heritage will receive an exterior refurbishment worthy of its location: its eastern flank, 1660 Madison, is about to undergo a major overhaul, with the old bush-hammered brick façade replaced by a sleek new skin of DEXTALL prefabricated panels.
