Originally designed by SOM’s Gordon Bunshaft and Natalie de Blois, the Lever House was completed in 1952, designated a New York City landmark in 1982, and added to the National History Register the following year.

New office facilities include a tenant-only club on the third floor, a communal lounge space, a restaurant and a meeting area. All of these are adjacent to a 15,000-square-foot outdoor terrace on a southern podium with birch trees and decorative planters.

Below, the renovation of the ground floor includes the replacement of old aluminum panels, stone pillars, lighting fixtures, and floors. The new lobby was designed by award-winning architect Marmol Radziner and the mechanical infrastructure has been upgraded from a guidance unit to a dedicated outside air system.

Lever House’s exterior and interior transformation is set to begin in the first quarter of 2023, with developers aiming for the highest green standards such as LEED Gold, WELL, WiredScore Platinum, Energy-Star and GRESB. .. YIMBY finally reported that tenants could start construction in their space in mid-2022.
