Description

One of the world’s most iconic skyscrapers, 70 Pine Street is a spindly, brown-brick shaft topped with a short spire over a totally glass-enclosed observatory that was once described by Carter B. Horsley as the world’s greatest room.

The tower was a very important element in the world’s most dramatic skyline at the start of the Depression. The 66-story, 952-foot-high tower was completed in 1932 when it became the city’s tallest building and the third tallest structure in the world.

It was designed by Clinton & Russell, Holton & George for Cities Service, an oil company later known as CITGO.  The Clinton & Russell firm also designed the very handsome Graham Court apartment complex in Harlem and the Apthorp Apartments on Broadway at 79th Street.

It is also known as 2-18 Cedar Street and 171-185 Pearl Street and was declared an official New York City landmark in 2011 when its ground-floor space were also designated an official landmark interior.

It is being converted to 644 rental apartments, 137 extended stay hotel rooms and 35,000 square feet of retail space by Rose Associates, which acquired  the building in 2012 from Nathan Berman of Metro Loft Management, and DTH Capital Inc., which is owned by Ageas Insurance, a publicly traded, Belgium-based insurance cmopany and the Eastbridege Group, a European private investment company.  Mr. Berman bought the building in 2011 from Young Woo and Associates that had acquired it from the American International Group (AIG), an insurance concern that collapsed in 2009 and was bailed out by the United States government.

The building's four floors of extended stay hotel rooms will be operated by Q&A.

Cities Service changed its name to Citgo in 1965 and in 1976 it was purchased by the American International Group.
