Facts

  • The tower is tiered on three sides, forming the classic "wedding-cake" shape of a New York setback skyscraper.
  • The setbacks recede in shallow formations from a massive, 16-story platform.
  • Polished red-granite panels frame wide-paned commercial windows at street level as part of the five-story limestone base.
  • Commanding dramatic, unobstructed views of the East River and the South Street Seaport, the 600,000 square foot 120 Wall Street office tower occupies an entire block on the world's most famous financial boulevard.
  • In cooperation with the City's Economic Development Corporation, Silverstein Properties obtained the designation of 120 Wall Street as New York City's first and only Association Center. The designation creates cost-effective office space.
  • 120 Wall Street has attracted more than 36 of the finest national not-for-profit organizations, including the world headquarters locations of the National Urban League, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International, The United Negro College Fund, and the Alan Guttmacher Institute.
  • The only major high-rise building on the East River downtown waterfront for many years until the post-1970s construction boom.
