Hearst Tower New York, NY
Publishing giant Hearst Corp is upgrading their New York City offices to the tune of a 46 story tower designed by the amazing Lord Norman Foster. The new tower is an iconic design of diamond grid sitting atop the original 6 story art deco base built in 1928. The tower will be home to around 2,000 employees with the most popular magazines occupying the uppermost floors. After the executive suites on the 43rd floor, Cosmopolitan will claim the 38th floor and O, the Oprah mag, will have its offices on the 36th. Hearst Tower is made even more remarkable through its "green" designation, the first in NYC. The special design of its exterior enabled the construction to use 2,000 pounds less steel in the tower and a rainwater collection system irrigates plantings and provides water to a interior water feature in the lobby. Don't we all wish we could work in a place like this?
