Facts

  • The interior makes extensive use of exposed concrete surfaces on the columns and walls.
  • Originally designed for an insurance company, this 42-story building is currently occupied by major financial and legal companies.
  • The building's large internal floorspace was made possible by the transfer of air-rights from low-rises in the South Street Seaport Museum area.
  • The octagonal plan of the building and the dark glass facade contrast with the neighbouring high-rises: the stepped limestone of the 120 Wall Street and the black and white grid on the slab of the 88 Pine Street.
  • In addition to office space the building includes a major cafeteria, an auditorium, and lecture halls for use by the occupants.
