Panel walls featuring Interwood quartered White Oak are currently being featured in a Verizon Wireless data commercial. 1155 Avenue of the Americas, completed in fall 2016, was used as a site location in the NYC focused commercial showing a typical New Yorker on the go, using his data. The main lobby and elevator corridors are a single Quartered White Oak log of consistent color and straight grain, specified by Studios Architecture. The log was purchased in the fall of 2015, lay up was done in winter of 2016, and 1155 was open to filming last fall.
