44 Union Square offers a unique, light filled space inspired by the 17th Century Indian Chief who continues today to symbolize peace – Chief Tamanend – the Chief of the Turtle Clan of the Lenni-Lenape Indian tribe and the architect of the 1628 peace treaty between European settlers and Native American Indians.
This seven level, 73,000 SF building is capped by a glorious 812 piece glass dome in the shape of a turtle. Chief Tamenend believed that a turtle rose from the water to form Turtle Island, which today is North America.
Today, 44 Union Square is the iconic and monumental northeast anchor to Union Square Park, which is located in one New York City’s most dynamic work/live neighborhoods. And, the architectural design of this important building has already several awards.
