Madison Green is the 31-story, 424-unit condominium apartment building located on the corner of East 23rd Street and Broadway, across from Madison Square, with its entrance at 5 East 22nd Street. The site was the location of a 5-alarm fire in October 1966 in which 12 firefighters died, the FDNY's worst loss of life prior to 9-11. The property was owned by the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, which failed to find a buyer for a decade. In the mid-1970s, when the neighborhood, now known as the Flatiron District, was at its nadir, it was announced that an apartment building would be built on the site, but the building was not actually constructed until 1982, signalling a change in the area's fortunes. The building was designed by Philip Birnbaum, with interior public spaces designed by David Kenneth Spector. (Sources: Alexiou Flatiron (2010), [1])
