NEW YORK CITY—Man’s best friend is not in the dog house but on Park Avenue—more specifically at 101 Park Ave. On Friday, Feb. 8, 2019 the American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog will open at HJ Kalikow & Company’s Midtown Manhattan office tower. The AKC has signed a 60,000 square-foot, 20-year lease at the property for its museum and corporate headquarters.

“We are proud to be the new home of what is considered one of the world’s largest collections of canine fine art,” says Peter S. Kalikow, president of HJ Kalikow. “The decision by the AKC to build its new museum within 101 Park Ave. reflects the building’s strategic location for visitors and commerce alike as well as our desire to have tenants that add prestige to this world famous address.”
