Tower Fifth is a skyscraper proposed for Midtown Manhattan in Manhattan, New York City. The developer, Macklowe Properties, has completed other projects including the redevelopment of the General Motors Building and construction of 432 Park Avenue. Plans for the structure were first revealed in January 2019, and the developer continued purchasing buildings to create an assemblage in 2019, closing on a building in March, and continuing to eye buildings in June. Demolition permits were first filed in April.
If completed as planned, it would become the second tallest building in New York City.
The façade of Tower Fifth is designed by Gensler and would feature a closed cavity system that reduces solar heat gain by 70 percent. The massing of the structure is consistent for the bulk of the rise until it reaches a cantilevering observation deck consisting of multiple floors at the top.
