Americas Tower, also known as 1177 Avenue of the Americas, is a 50-story, 692-foot (211 m) skyscraper in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, standing at West 45th Street. It is the 70th tallest building in New York.
Construction began in 1989 and was expected to be completed in 1991. This schedule was altered when construction was halted in December 1989 due to lawsuits. In February 1991, construction resumed.
The tower is designed with a mixture of art deco and postmodern styles by Swanke Hayden Connell Architects. The façade, which is a reddish-pink color, is made of polished granite. The tower was sold in 2002 for US$ 500 million to a group of German-American investors.
