Description
Located at the western edge of Midtown Manhattan, the mixed use development, Mercedes House, occupies three quarters of a block on the 11th Avenue between the 53 and 54. The project shifts diagonally across the site in a unique orientation to the Manhattan grid, reducing the building’s mass adjacent to the neighboring buildings. The building fills a void in the urban fabric by integrating multiple commercial uses at the base and providing needed housing in the 27 floors above. The rest of the program includes a Mercedes Benz showroom, a horse stable for the NYPD Mounted Police, a neighborhood market and a health club.
