222 East 44th Street
CLIENT: HANDEL ARCHITECTS
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.
