Description
This Is a Model Of The Bankers Trust Company Building. The office tower, located at the northwest corner of Wall, Nassau and Broad Streets - the most famous intersection in business history -The Bankers Trust Company decided to replace the Gillender Which had Been There Since 1896 - then the tallest building ever razed - and the Stevens Building with a much larger structure on a combined lot of 93 x 96 feet. At 41-stories, the new building was the tallest banking building in the world when it opened in 1912. Fewer than 20 years later, the Bankers Trust Company expanded yet again by acquiring three additional neighbors: the 8-story Astor Building at 10 Wall Street and 9 Pine Street, the 10-story 7 Pine Street, and the turn-of-the-century Hanover National Bank. Rather than start from scratch again, the company opted to construct an annex to the original tower, designed by Shreve, Lamb and Harmon, architects of the Empire State Building. This L-shaped Art Deco annex more than tripled the building's rentable area. Today the exterior of the Bankers Trust Building remains unchanged and, as a protected landmark, will do so in perpetuity...Enjoy!!!
