The World’s Best Address

The 20-story building, once the headquarters of fashion house Gucci, was originally built in 1928 and was known as the Dorothy Gray Building. At present, a brand new flagship Coach retail store occupies the first three floors, with Stuart Weitzman just to its south. The property will be redeveloped and ten additional floors will be added to the top of the tower.
