First Financial Center at 255 Fifth

Completed in 1991, First Financial Center is a 32-story office tower that contains 525,036 square feet of office space and 28,623 square feet of exclusive retail space. The tower is clad in Sardinian Gray granite and bronze-tinted glass. The building's rooftop crown of sculptured diamond shapes is dramatically lit at night, establishing a strong architectural identity. On Fifth Street, a two-story portico marks the beginning of a grand processional into First Financial Center's 21-foot-high lobby, which features walls clad in cream-colored travertine and rich mahogany.

Hines sold the project in 2006, but continued as Property Manager until June 2017.
