According to behind-the-scenes, it is fixed atop the MetLife Building, which was a 59-story skyscraper looming over Grand Central Station in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. As an error, the MetLife Building still occasionally appears in Jessica Jones, which was produced and set after the events of The Avengers in which Avengers Tower first appeared.
Originally known as Stark Tower and owned by Tony Stark (Iron Man), it operated as a facility for Stark Industries, until it was partially destroyed during the Battle of New York. Then it was reconstructed as Avengers Tower for the Avengers to use as a base and home. After Ultron was destroyed, another upstate warehouse was made as the base of operations for the Avengers, Avengers Tower acted as only the home to Stark, with some of the Avengers' possessions still hanging around. Two months after the signing of the Sokovia Accords, Stark sold the tower, moving into the expanded upstate base.
After Peter Parker got back from his trip in Europe, the building was in the middle of a renovation.
