Kevin Roche, architect of the Ford Foundation and 1+2 United Nations Plaza, designed this jagged office tower in 1990. Faced with dark grey glass and ceramic-coated panels, the stepped elevations terminate in a mansard-like roof with a slender, off-center spire. As required throughout the Times Square entertainment district, the lower floors are wrapped with advertising.
