About the Building

Originally built as an office building for Qantas airlines, the building now houses a retail outlet for Tiffany jewelry.

When erected in the early 1970s, it was intended to complement the more ornate buildings that surrounded it - especially the Fitzhugh Building that previously stood where Saks Fifth Avenue is today. When the Classical Fitzhugh Building was torn down, the Qantas Building became less of a restrained contrast and more of a bland continuation of the more modern Saks.
