Faits

  • The current office block was once intended to be the base of a mammoth high-rise, but Corbett's longed-for skyscraper was never built.
  • Lured to the project by the client's offer of a high salary and the chance to build a mile-high tower of steel, stone and glass, the, Columbia University-educated architect Harvey Wiley Corbett left his position on the Rockefeller Center design team in order to take up this project in 1928.
  • While construction of this steel-framed structure proceeded through the Depression, the crash of 1929 ultimately reduced the scope of the project.
  • Clad in Alabama limestone with marble details and richly appointed marble lobbies, the vertically striated surfaces and streamlined undulating masses of this Art Deco building give it a slick if somewhat sinister appearance.
  • Was finally completed in 1950 after three stages of construction.
