The Hearst Tower in New York is the world headquarters of the Hearst Corporation. The former 6-story headquarters building was commissioned by the founder, William Randolph Hearst and awarded to the architect Joseph Urban. The building was completed in 1928. The original cast stone façade has been preserved in the new design as a designated Landmark site. Originally built as the base for a proposed skyscraper, the construction of the tower was postponed due to the Great Depression. The new tower addition was completed nearly 80 years later. The uncommon triangular framing pattern of the tower (also known as a diagrid) required (reportedly) about 20% less than a conventional steel frame. Hearst Tower was the first skyscraper to break ground in NYC after September 11, 2001. It's the first green building completed in NYC, with a number of environmental considerations built into the plan. The building was designed to use 25% less energy than the minimum requirements for the city of NY.
