299 Park Avenue:
299 Park Avenue is the name of an office building which is located in this Zip. It stands between 48th and 49th Streets. This building is said to be the home of the New York Headquarters of the UBS Investment Bank. The Bank ends up occupying around 2/3rd of the floors. The architects of this building were the well-known Emery Roth & Sons, while the developers of the building were the esteemed Fisher Brothers. The office space in this gigantic structure spans up to approximately 111,483 square meters space.
The site on which 299 Park Avenue stands today was the very ground of the original Park Lane Hotel. This building was said to be originally constructed over some rail tracks that had been set down; and it was this little detail that made the entire engineering and construction of the structure even trickier.
The building has also etched its place in history due to two large fires that broke out here; one in 1980 and then in 1981. The 1980 fire is considered to be the more tragic of the two. It claimed the lives of about 125 firefighters.
