222 East 44th Street
CLIENT: HANDEL ARCHITECTS
Location: East Midtown Manhattan
The massing of 222 East 44th Street has been skewed to misalign with the Manhattan grid, offering more views to the nearby Chrysler Building.
222 East 44th's through-block site fronts both 43rd and 44th Street, and sits halfway between Second and Third Avenue. This location offered a rare opportunity to design a freestanding building in the midst of the dense urban fabric of East Midtown in Manhattan.
