Facts

  • The 45-storey exterior of the 180.5 m tall building follows the extension's uniform vertical striping, with the limestone piers here nearly flush with the glass surface.
  • The elevated plaza facing Sixth Avenue is flanked on the south side by a lower wing protruding from the main building mass, closing the plaza row of the Extension.
  • The tower was built in 1973 next to the McGraw-Hill Building as the southernmost of the Rockefeller Center Extension skyscrapers, with the Celanese corporation as the main tenant.
  • The Cleanse Building is headquarters of the FOX Entertainment Group (News Corporation).
