601 Lexington Avenue


601 Lexington Avenue, located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan at East 53rd Street and Lexington Avenue, reimagines the office building as an urban oasis. A signature restaurant, food market atrium, retail space, terraces and a sunken plaza engage people and activity at all levels.

MPFP was commissioned to design the planted areas for both the interior and exterior spaces, including an interior façade greenwall, sunken plaza, and signature restaurant terrace. This design consisted of a dramatic rehabilitation effort of an existing open air concourse, interior plantings for a new 62” green wall and contextually sensitive roof top plantings to match the signature restaurant.

MPFP also navigated the client through the ULURP process to acquire the POPS necessary to make this space a beautiful community asset.
