The 37-story 550 Madison, also known as AT&T Corporate Headquarters Building, was completed in 1984 by Philip Johnson and John Burgee, and is considered a benchmark of postmodernism as the first commercial skyscraper of that style. The building has a “Chippendale” roofline and pinkish-grey granite that helps it stand out among its Midtown Manhattan neighbors.  The Landmark Preservation Commission (LPC) calls it “one of the most important postmodernist buildings in the world and it is one of Johnson/Burgee’s most celebrated works to this day.”
