About This File

The Hearst Tower is a building with the addresses of 300 West 57th Street and 959 Eighth Avenue,[2] near Columbus Circle, in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. It is the world headquarters of Hearst Communications, housing the numerous publications and communications companies of the media conglomerate under one roof, including, among others, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, Marie Claire, Harper's Bazaar, Good Housekeeping, and Seventeen.

 

The six-story base of the headquarters building was commissioned by the founder, William Randolph Hearst, and awarded to the architect Joseph Urban. The building was completed in 1928[3] at a cost of $2 million and contained 40,000 square feet (3,700 m2). The original cast stone facade has been preserved in the new design as a designated Landmark site. Originally built as the base for a proposed skyscraper, the construction of the tower was postponed due to the Great Depression. The new tower addition was completed nearly eighty years later, and 2,000 Hearst employees moved in on June 26, 2006.

 

Is a Landmark version.

I'm sorry for my failure to load. I have done it again and I hope it will work now. I hope you like it.

thanks for everything!

Hey Guy. That is cool you are giving an interest for NYC buildings. Those models you choose are truly interesting models, particularly the Hearst Tower....

BUT, the problem is that those models you upload are just simple textured box...  So in term of quality it's not that good, and the texture need some more work as long as the rest of the model. You could decide to learn a little, how to BAT and recreate those models out of Sketchup import/Gmax export.

I gave you a 3 (because you show a very passionnate will to build, but a 3 because those models definetly needs more work).

Regardless of any technical or other detail regarding this building.  It is the first building I've seen that thoroughly looks like a glass building in SC4 according to my screen settings.   Its more than a model, its magic. :ohyes:

@Parisian Thanks for your opinion. I am passionate about the world of architecture. I love New York and for me it is a passion and a dream to recreate it in this great game. I would love to learn as much as possible so I can share with all my best version of all my models. Thank you for your vote and the rest of fellow Simtropolis!
