Testimonial - Robert Siegel

on 400 Fifth Ave

Located near the Empire State Building, this 57-story hotel and condominium tower required a highly-customized faceted window profile established within the podium creating a visually unique facade.

Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® provided precisely what was needed. These windows are faceted or angulated, with outside corners at the condominium levels that are all glass. Residents enjoy a stunning view of midtown Manhattan.

Due to the complex nature of the window design, Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® created a full-scale mock-up, which allowed the design and engineering teams to review aesthetics and performance.
