Facts

  • The Grant USA Tower was an extravaganza planned by now-bankrupt developer Harry Grant in the mid-1980's. Its promoters claimed it would become the tallest building, the tallest structure, and the tallest hotel in the world.
  • Plans called for condominium offices up to the 100th floor, a 500-room hotel from floors 100-121, and a 21-story atrium at the very top.
  • A green-gold glass facade was meant to symbolize New Jersey, the Garden State. More obvious symbolism was planned in the form of a golden eagle atop a flagpole displaying a huge American flag, and enormous letters "USA" emblazoned across the building's top.
