Facts

  • Forty Wall Street was completed in 11 months, a record-breaking feat for a building containing nearly one million square feet of floor space.
  • This tower was once part of a celebrated three-way race to become the tallest building in the world.
  • Despite its height, the skyscraper loses much of its impact because it is a midblock site, situated next to the mighty Greek Revival Federal Hall National Memorial.
  • Briefly held the world's tallest title until it was eclipsed by the spire of Chrysler Building.
  • The Trump Organization acquired the building as a speculative venture in 1995, and the block-through lobby was renovated by Der Scutt Architects.
  • Is often called the "Crown Jewel of Wall Street".
