In the mid part of the 21st century she was sold to my favorite corporate personality #Sam_Zell as part of his plan to expand $EOP into #NYC but soon after closing his company was bought in what was then the biggest LBO in history. The reskin went on as planned and now she is a nice addition to the beautiful Bryant Park westward skyline. 1y

In the late 80s this was converted to one of the first indoor malls in #gotham which was a massive failure. Now it is a fairly non descrept mixed use office and retail complex 2y
