"Olympic Tower was the city’s first major mixed-use tower in midtown when it was built in 1976 at 641 Fifth Avenue on the northeast corner at 51st Street.

The 52-story building was the first building erected under the city's Special Fifth Avenue Zoning District regulations that were enacted in 1971." Read Carter's Full Review
