Facts

  • The plaza underwent in 1987 a redesign by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates.
  • The facade has vertical window striping with darker spandrels.
  • The 192 meters tall building consists of two parts: the 44-storey windowless "core" on the western side, and the intertwining office part facing east.
  • The tower was built in 1966 to Maiden Lane for the Home Insurance Company, as one of the first Downdown International Style skyscrapers to follow in the wake of the nearby One Chase Manhattan Plaza of 1960.
  • With that arrangement the building resembles Poor's Jacob K. Javits Federal Building, completed a year later to the Downtown Civic Center.
