The Rudins Complete Renovations at 560 Lexington Ave


The Rudin Management Co—one of New York’s leading and oldest real estate families—just completed a renovation of the lobby, public areas and subway entrance of the 400k SF tower at 560 Lexington Ave. Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the Rudin's commissioned architectural firm, helped build the multimillion-dollar project, and used a lighter palette—replacing the brick and bronze of the original lobby with Portuguese limestone, white Spanish granite flooring, large windows and a glass entrance that allow for more open and naturally lit space. Rudin co-vice chairmen Bill and Eric Rudin noted that the building was originally built by their fathers—Jack and Lewis Rudin—to promote development in New York City in the 1970s, and this new renovation should show just how committed they are to the city. The building is leased to Bayern LB, which signed a 15-year, 55k SF lease at the property, Vodafone, which occupies a 34k SF space, Verizon and Merrill Lynch, among others.
