The Coates Building
555 Madison Avenue has been owned and operated by the Coates family since 1961. With a long term outlook, ownership continues to focus on creating value for the building and the companies which call 555 Madison home. Since 2012, a substantial modernization program has been implemented. This includes a redesigned lobby finished with 20-foot walls of French limestone and Swedish granite flooring as well as a refinished building facade. Most recently a full modernization program of the building’s elevator cabs is underway, scheduled to be completed by the end of 2017.
Since 2007, the building has been a committed participant in the Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership whose members pledge to purchase at least 15% of their energy from green power sources. As part of this commitment, ownership has upgraded the building's fan systems with energy-efficient motors and variable frequency drives. In 2014 the building upgraded their chiller plant and now has dual fuel cooling capabilities, and maximum redundancy and flexibility to ensure no service interruptions during periods of extreme weather conditions. We are in the early stages of installing an additional 500-ton tenant dedicated cooling tower which will provide condenser water to tenants on a 24/7/365 basis.

HVAC In 2014, the building’s chiller plant was supplemented by the
installation of (2) 500-ton electric drive chillers. In
conjunction with the (2) existing steam absorption chillers, the
building now has dual fuel cooling capabilities, and the
maximum redundancy and flexibility possible to ensure no
service interruptions. A 1,200 ton Phillips induced draft
cooling tower is operable year-round to meet our current
tenant condenser water needs for supplemental Air
Conditioning. We are currently in the early stages of
installing an additional 500-ton cooling tower which will
provide condenser water to tenants on 24/7/365 basis.
All floors are equipped with dual temperature
(winter/summer) peripheral fan coil units, each with its own
filter and controls. Four main supply fans cool/heat the core
portions of the building. Hours of operation are:
Monday – Friday, 8:00am to 6:00pm.
Telecom All Floors have access to the building's fiber optics. The
telecommunications provider is Verizon. Incoming service is
provided at cellar level with two closets on each tenant floor.
Time Warner is our cable provider.
Security Lobby turnstiles have been installed and the lobby desk is
staffed 24/7/365. A building ID system provides employee
access based on tenant’s parameters. A visitor management
system enables tenants to pre-announce guests and VIP’s for
easy and quick access at the lobby.
