TEI Group wins contract to install elevator in redeveloped 640 5th Ave next to Rockefeller Center

640 5th Avenue – New York, NY

TEI Group wins contract to install one (1) custom hydraulic elevators at 640 5th avenue. 640 5th is a, LEE-EB Certified, 22 story office tower, managed by Vornado Realty Trust.

In 2005, Vornado completed a creative redevelopment of this boutique wedding-cake-style building across from Rockefeller Center on Fifth Avenue and 51st Street.

To fully realize the value of the building's air rights, a 35,000-square-foot glass "jewel box" tower designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates was added, maximizing views of Rockefeller Center's Channel Gardens and St. Patrick's Cathedral.

The development comprises oor-to-ceiling glass walls and column-free space on tower oors, plus a sleek, modern lobby that features an Amses Cosma glass wall sculpture.
