Hearst Tower is a 46-story glass and steel, 858,000 square foot commercial office building for the Hearst Corporation. The building was built within and above the original six-story Hearst office building. The 1928 landmark façade was restored and integrated with the tower. The structural frame, standing 598 feet tall, is enclosed with a panelized glass curtain wall system and stainless steel diagrid cladding. The triangulated steel frame uses 21% less steel than a traditionally framed building, saving 2,000 tons of steel.
Turner was also selected for the 650,000 square foot interior fit-out of 34 floors at Hearst Tower, which included 17 floors of fit-out for Hearst publishing subsidiaries, a 10th floor data center and a 13th floor fitness center. For the 28th floor tenant, Good Housekeeping Magazine, the scope of work included labs, test kitchens and dining rooms. The fit-out also included three floors of high end executive offices, an executive conference center, a dining room and a working kitchen.
Hearst Tower is the first commercial building in the United States to receive the Green Building tax credit, and is also registered as a New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). The project achieved the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design LEED Gold Designation.
