BANK OF AMERICA –NEW YORK HEADQUARTERS
One Bryant Park, the New York headquarters of Bank of America, a 55-story building encompassing 2.2 million square feet in Manhattan. The architect, Cook + Fox Architects, LLP of New York, fashioned the tower to be “the most environmentally responsible high-rise office building in the United States” according to published reports. Wilkstone played a major role in the building’s distinctiveness, whose main lobby centers on 9,000 square feet of Jerusalem gray limestone, which was delivered from Israel and cut in Wilkstone’s fabrication shop. The limestone was set on the lobby wall in varying thickness, and each stone, which ranges from one and a fourth inches to two inches thick, is individually supported with steel clips. Wilkstone won the Marble Institute’s Award of Merit for this project. The building also features Kashmir White granite with a flamed finish. The granite was quarried in the state of Tamil Nadu in Southern India and fabricated in New York. Wilkstone installed more than 30,000 square feet of the Kashmir White granite in the main and second floor lobbies and throughout the interior and exterior.
