730 Third Avenue

New York, New York

Nuveen Real Estate and development advisor Taconic Partners enlisted Gensler to transform 730 Third Avenue — TIAA’s headquarters since the 1950s — into a sophisticated Class A office and retail building. Gensler led the design of the building repositioning, including a new ground and second-floor facade renovation, a new lobby, and the addition of a full-floor amenity space and a spacious rooftop terrace. The facade was re-clad and re-glazed, and an expanded double-height entry creates a frontage scaled for presence and impact. A Helicoidal feature stair in the lobby leads to the amenity floor, which features a state-of-the-art fitness center, conference center, food hall, and co-working lounge, as well as a space to exhibit rotating artwork. An occupant-accessible terrace with 360-degree skyline views provides tenants access to the outdoors and fresh air and fosters a connection to the surrounding neighborhood.
