Construction activity is underway at One Madison Avenue in the Flatiron District, where the 13-story full-block structure is being renovated and expanded with a new 18-story addition. Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by SL Green, the project will stand 27 stories and yield 1.4 million square feet of Class A office space. Helping to develop and finance One Madison Avenue’s future are the National Pension Service of Korea and Hines, contributing a grand total of $1.25 billion in construction financing. The property is bound by East 23rd Street to the south, Madison Avenue and Madison Square Park to the west, East 24th Street to the north, and Park Avenue South to the east.

A new public art installation has come to Madison Square Park’s Oval Lawn, in the Flatiron District. The piece is named Whiteout, and it consists of nine hundred white LED orbs suspended by cable in the shape of two parallel rectangular grids. The lights hang about a foot above the ground, allowing the wind to create noticeable oscillating patterns. Erwin Redl, an Austrian artist, is responsible for the creation of the piece.
