Hearst Tower is 46-storey extension above an existing six-storey Art Deco building located in New York. Completed in 2006, the tower was designed by Norman+ Forster and achieved LEED certification with gold rating. During a ceremony in the Frankfurt Paulskirche recently, the tower was crowned with the prestigious International Highrise Award.
Lord Foster “I am thrilled that Hearst Tower has been honoured with this prestigious award. It is a mark of an enlightened client and a great city that the tower literally sparkles on the New York skyline today. It represents the realisation of William Randolph Hearst’s original plan for a tower in Manhattan and it has been a privilege to revive this dream with a sustainable new home for the Hearst Corporation.”
