The handsome, glass-clad Helena is a huge rental apartment slab tower on 57th Street at 11th Avenue that was erected in 2005 by the Durst Organization and Sidney Fetner Associates, who had previously erected another rental tower, the Epic south of Herald Square.
The Helena, which was designed by Fox & Fowle, is one of the "greenest" residential buildings in the city. It is 38 stories tall and has 597 apartments.

Outdoor air used to ventilate the corridors is filtered by ultraviolet light to help protect residents from airborne pathogens.
