Built in 1926, the Graybar Building is a 31-story building with an exuberant Art Deco exterior and ornate interior lobby. Located adjacent to Grand Central Terminal with direct lobby access to the station, the building features retail establishments along its Lexington Avenue streetfront and within its lobby corridors. BBB’s work on the exterior of the building involved the design of monumental bronze, glass, and granite storefronts, a new entrance, and a new canopy. The interior work focused on the restoration of the lobbies, vestibules, and corridors, including the decorative, vaulted ceilings, mosaic flooring and wall treatments, ornamental bronze grills and doors, and vitrines. BBB also designed a state-of-the-art information desk in cherry wood, bronze, and polished granite that stylistically complements the building’s 32 reconditioned elevator cabs.
Located directly on top of Grand Central Terminal at the intersection of Lexington Avenue and 43rd Street, the Graybar Building is a 31-story, 1.5 million square foot landmarked Art Deco office tower. Other prominent tenants include New York Life Insurance, Metro-North Commuter Railroad Co. and SL Green Realty Corp.
