Mark Bradford, "Elgin Gardens"
Located in the heart of Midtown, 1221 Avenue of the Americas stands as a monument to modernity and design. The recent renovations to the lobby, exterior and side-street plazas have streamlined and enhanced the aesthetic of the building. MdeAS’ renovations have brought forth a sense of continuity from the entry to the lobby, installing floor-to-ceiling windows on the exterior to flood the interior with natural light and create a grand, yet inviting space. In addition, the 48th and 49 Street plazas have been transformed with trees, improved lighting and benches to promote public use and to establish an outdoor urban space within the business center of New York City.
