Hines 750 Seventh
750 Seventh Avenue
New York, NY 10019
Owned and managed by Hines, 750 Seventh Avenue is a 36-story, 592,000-square-foot office tower located on Seventh Avenue between 49th and 50th streets in Manhattan. Designed by Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo & Associates and completed in 1990, 750 Seventh Avenue is distinguished by a series of stepped ziggurat setbacks, each climbing in lateral sections across the fa?ade and each capped with a bright-white angled roof section. Another distinctive element is a 100-foot spire at the building crown, its obelisk-like angles referencing those of the building itself. Inside, the elegant lobby includes soaring columns of polished pearl granite and Bethel white stone.
750 Seventh Avenue earned the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance through extensive retrofits to building infrastructure and through the active management of building energy consumption. HVAC systems were a major focus for retrofits, with the installation of variable frequency drives (VFDs) on all of the building's chilled water pumps and the cooling tower fans, allowing them to operate at levels that closely track actual demand. Return dampers throughout the system were recalibrated or replaced, while setpoints were reset for improved efficiency. A new building energy management system (EMS) was also installed, giving property managers and engineers the ability to centrally monitor and control building energy consumption at all times.
Hines has been recognized with multiple ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence and Partner of the Year awards. For a summary of the firm's participation in the ENERGY STAR program and other sustainability information, visit www.hines.com/sustainability.
