NYC - Midtown: 750 Seventh Avenue

750 Seventh Avenue is a 36-floor, 615-foot tall skyscraper built in 1989 to the postmodern design of Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo & Associate. The building's continuous helix design, culminating in a chimney-like extension, was caused by the New York City Building Code, which requires setbacks. The 84 exterior column transfers exist because of the owner's requirement for a column-free space. In April 2011 Fosterlane Management from Kuwait announced they are buying the building from Hines for $485 million.
