Manufacturers Trust Landmark on Fifth Avenue: Joe Fresh Takes over, Battles, and Renovates

Manufacturers Trust Company Building, 43rd and 5th Avenue, circa mid-1950’s

By 1953, Manufacturers Trust had been in business for 100 years and a pioneer in retail banking for over a decade. In 1954, this successful bank took its place at the forefront of modern architecture when it hired Gordon Bunshaft of Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill to build a new mid-town branch. Bunshaft would design a striking example of mid-20th century International Style that still stands today, at the corner of West 43rd Street and Fifth Avenue.
