Centrally located in the core of midtown Manhattan's prestigious office submarket between Grand Central Terminal and East 45th Street, The MetLife Building is a 58-storey, trophy-quality asset, comprised of 3.0 million square feet of office and retail space with an adjacent six-level parking garage. The history of The MetLife Building begins in 1954 as part of the plan to reconstruct Grand Central Terminal. Erwin S. Wolfson developed the project in the early 1960's with the assistance of the architects Emery Roth and Sons, Walter Gropius and Pietro Belluschi. When the doors of The MetLife Building opened on March 7, 1963, it was known as 'The Pan Am Building' and was the focal point of Park Avenue. It stretches from East 43rd Street to East 45th Street and offers direct access to Grand Central Terminal, an important transportation hub in New York City (text from www.streeteasy.com).
