Occupying a prime corner in the Lincoln Center district the Millenium Partners is a 32-story mixed-use building was developed by Christopher M. Jeffries, Philip E. Aarons and H. Lovett and was designed by Gary Handel Associates and Schuman Lichtenstein Claman Efron. The developers are known as Millennium Partners and developed two other major residential and retail towers at Lincoln Square.
Several floors are used as hotel units and above the retail base, which includes a major Tower Records store, are 200 condominium apartments. The hotel units are known as the Phillips Club and occupy four floors in the building. The units are designed for "extended stay" use and proved so successful in the tight hotel market of 1997 in the city that the developers decided to double the number of units to 192 by expanding into the former Chinese Mission to the United Nations Building, a 9-story structure next door on West 66th Street. The developers will build a new mission for the Chinese on First Avenue and 35th Street.
The Grand Millennium building was completed in late 1996. Its tower which has slightly curved end facing south, is set back on a five-story base. The curved, mostly glass south façade has a more modern character to it than most of its neighbors, but the angled base, which conforms to the Broadway street wall, creates an odd tension here.
The design relates to nothing in the vicinity although the setback tower at least opens up the congested area to a bit more "light and air." Given its prominent location at the heart of the area's considerable cultural and retail activity, an opportunity to do something dramatic and significant was missed here.
Some of the units have fireplaces and balconies and all have TV security and intrusion alarms.
