1095 Avenue Of The Americas is a 630 ft (192m) tall skyscraper in New York City, New York. 1095 Avenue of the Americas was constructed from 1972 to 1974 as headquarters of New York Telephone and has 41 floors. The building also served as the headquarters of Bell Atlantic. Kahn & Jacobs designed the building, which is the 61st tallest in New York. From 2006 to 2007 the 1095 Avenue of the Americas tower received a $260 million renovation which upgraded the office space from Class B+ to Class A office space. The phone company moved its headquarters to the Verizon Building but retained offices, and a telephone exchange serving landlines in Midtown Manhattan, on floors 6-12.
Other major tenants in the 1095 Avenue of the Americas as of late 2008 include insurance giant MetLife (whose name is outside above the entryway), law firm Dechert LLP, iStar Financial, Royal Bank of Scotland, and Centerline Capital.
