Located in the heart of the diamond district on Fifth Avenue and 47th Street, the building serves as the Diamond Exchange. When the building was occupied at full capacity, it became necessary to add additional elevator services. Although zoning issues prevented the elevator installation, Sheldon Lobel, P.C. filed an application at the Board of Standards and Appeals and obtained necessary approvals. When a neighboring property owner filed a court challenge to the approval, Sheldon Lobel, P.C., successfully defended the Article 78 proceeding in the Supreme Court.
