In addition to office space the building includes a major cafeteria, an auditorium, and lecture halls for use by the occupants.
Originally designed for an insurance company, this 42-story building is currently occupied by major financial and legal companies.
The interior makes extensive use of exposed concrete surfaces on the columns and walls.
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.
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.
