Designed by Daniel Burhnam and officially addressed as 175 Fifth Avenue, the 119-year-old steel-framed office building was one of the first skyscrapers to be constructed in the 20th century and rises on a thin triangular parcel wedged between Broadway and Fifth Avenue and West 22nd and West 23rd Streets. YIMBY last reported that the restoration is expected to cost between $60 and $80 million.
