Office Living, Not Office Space
Owned by the William Kaufman Organization, 767 Third Avenue is one of Manhattan’s most distinctive buildings. The 40-story sinuous tower is constructed from a unique mix of oak and brick. The building has a total of 296,000 square feet of office space.
In keeping with the rich tradition instituted by Kaufmans, 767 Third Avenue boasts many one-of-a-kind elements and public amenities, including an open plaza area with wooden benches and tables, a 1929 Ford truck and a three-story-high chess board hailed as the world’s largest.
Designed by award-winning architecture firm FXFowle, with the plaza and lobby by Pamela Waters, 767 Third Avenue is a technologically modern building. Recent capital improvements provided for stripping and refinishing of the oak façade and tables and benches in the plaza area. Wi-Fi capabilities were also added to the lobby and plaza.
Fogarty Finger Architecture and landscape architect MPFP were commissioned to transform a portion of the 7th floor into a unique “home away from home” amenity center. Club 767 includes a sundeck with lush landscaping, movable tables and chairs, foosball tables, as well as a new, original amenity for a Manhattan commercial office building – a dropdown movie screen. A state-of-the-art tenant lounge featuring a communal meeting space equipped with split-screen TVs, couches and a kitchenette/pantry. Club 767 also features a sophisticated boardroom that provides a higher degree of meeting productivity.
