The National Pension Service of Korea and Hines are also part of the development team and recently acquired $1.25 billion in construction financing for the property, which occupies a full block bound by East 23rd and 24th Streets and Madison Avenue and Park Avenue South. The project team is aiming for both WELL and LEED Gold certification.
