The dark tower rising at 165 Broadway in Lower Manhattan was originally built in 1973 for the U.S. Steel Corporation. It was designed by Roy Allen of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill at the site of the former Singer Building, and it’s today known as One Liberty Plaza.
The tower is located close to the World Trade Center site, and its facade was damaged during the 9/11 attacks. The building, currently owned by Brookfield Properties and Blackstone, was renovated after the attacks in 2002. It currently houses various companies in industries like finance, law, banking and media.
