1485 Fifth Avenue, Fifth on the Park

A flashy anomaly in the neighborhood, 1485 Fifth Avenue, also known as “Fifth on the Park”, is a 2007 design by FXFOWLE Architects.  A highly sculptural ground floor is offset by a red brick approximation of Art Moderne above; the effect is playful if somewhat aggressively so.

FXFOWLE Architects’ credits include the mock-deconstructionist 4 Time Square (the former Conde Nast Building) and the work-in-progress Statue of Liberty Museum.

1485 Fifth Avenue is the most recent residential high-rise on Fifth Avenue north of 59th Street.
