Facts

  • Converted into a data center, re-opening 2013.
  • Located next to the Brooklyn Bridge in Downtown Manhattan, the building owes its great height to deal made with the builders of the adjacent Murray Bergtraum High School.
  • As this triangular, low castle-like structure used only a portion of the building rights for the plot, they agreed to transfer the rest for the NY Telephone Co. to use on the switching station tower. As a payback, NY Tele paid the bonds that were used to finance the school building.
  • The building houses telecom equipment inside its 32-storey mass. The form of the white slab is broken by twin protrusions on the sides, rising above the roof level, to the height of 164.5 meters.
