Refurbishing Fifth Avenue 660 near the end in Midtown, Manhattan

A curtain wall installation is approaching the railing of 660 Fifth Avenue, a 39-story commercial tower undergoing modernization in Midtown. Designed by Con Pedersen Fox and developed by Brookfield Properties, the project includes an interior renovation and complete re-cladding of the 64-year-old structure, which will yield 1.25 million square feet of office space and is expected to achieve LEED Gold approval. Turner Construction Company is the general contractor of the property, which is located along Fifth Avenue between West 52nd and 53rd Streets, and was previously listed on Fifth Avenue 666.

Significant progress has been made in the new glass casing since our last update in January, with only seven floors left to wear. The scaffolding has been removed from the upper levels, which are expected to be fully closed in the coming weeks.
