Commissioned by William Randolph Hearst, the first 6 stories of this tower in New York City were built in 1928 and were supposed to be the base for a skyscraper, but the Great Depression hit and the plans had to be postponed. Nearly 80 years later, a tower was finally constructed that kept the stone facade and added 40 more stories. The award-winning skyscraper, designed by Norman Foster, was built using a rare triangular framing pattern known as a diagrid, but it is most notable for being the first green building completed in New York City. As headquarters for Hearst Communications, it houses many publication companies such as Cosmopolitan, Esquire, Harper’s Bazaar and more
