 NEW YORK SCRAPERS - INTERNATIONAL STYLE I
And because the building preceded the legislation of plaza bonuses (only coming to force as a law in December 1961), its bulk was made possible by using only a quarter of the plot for the tower footprint, thus giving it unlimited height as per the 1916 zoning.
The buildings employ a similar style of black steel spandrels and soaring white mullions framing the dark-tinted glass -- although here the vertical mullions alternate with narrower black ones, as opposed to their more "dominating" presence on the neighbouring building's facade -- and the building is at 209.5 m of approximately the same size.
The building is at 247.5 m one of the tallest in Downtown and its facade consists of glass and anodized aluminium plating between the large supporting columns.

 [22 Oct 1997] GA/SHC/3420 : THIRD COMMITTEE IS TOLD STILL TOO FEW WOMEN OCCUPY SENIOR POSITIONS IN UNITED NATIONS SECRETARIAT

As the United Nations underwent a process of reform, the issues of gender equity, mainstreaming and women's rights within the Organization were particularly important.

Trump’s new building ideally should be erected in the middle of the huge plaza at the World Trade Center, across from the Millennium Hotel as it would act as an excellent foil for that center’s famous twin towers whose spatial resonances have never quite jelled and could use some contrapuntal competition.
