Cornell erected 11,000 tons of structural steel at the 42 story Hearst Tower in New York City. Rising to a height of 597 feet.
The original building was designated a historical landmark, and as such, mandated preservation of the existing facade. A new structural steel framing system was installed to support the existing limestone facade and allow the demolition of the existing building. The facade was then tied back into the new building and is married to the new tower, combining the new with the old.
