Facts

  • There was a vertical core planned containing stairs and elevators, and four radial supporting structures.
  • Duplex apartments took up one quarter of the building, the other sides were planned for offices.
  • The design Wright used in the Price Tower was a further development of the plan for the St. Mark's Tower of 1929.
  • This project - the famous apartment tower for the vestry of St Mark's - was never built, but Wright returned to the basic concept again and again. Finally, in 1954, in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, Wright was able to build his St. Mark's Tower - twenty-five years after it was first designed.
