The Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park
was designed by Cook+Fox Architects and is scheduled
for completion in 2009. The 54-story building has around
2.1 million square feet of office space and stands
1,200 feet tall at its architectural spire, making it, arguably,
the second tallest building in New York City.

The location of the building was originally occupied
by a nondescript collection of mostly low-rise buildings,
although block included a narrow 22-floor tower, the
Remington Building. The intimate, tiered Henry Miller's
Theatre (built in 1918) on 43rd Street was also demolished, although
the facade and some lobby fixtures were preserved for incorporation
into a larger 1,000-seat theatre that will be included in
the new building.
