The Hearst Tower, located on West 57th street was designed by Sir Norman Foster of Great Britain. The building is a very high-tech, modern styled building. It was constructed in April 30, 2003. It was built on top of the original Hearst headquarters which is the smaller, 6 story building that originally occupied the space. This building really shows the contrast of the different style of architectural design through this project. The building is the first in New York City to be listed as a “green” building.
