Overview

Erected in 1978 by the architects Hugh Stubbins & Associates with the help of Emery Roth & Sons, this 910-foot high modern skyscraper is a vision of glass and aluminum with long sleek "legs." Four large "stilts" hold the tower, and the top has an angled roof originally built as a solar panel. Thought of as one of the most successful urban complexes in New York history, the infrastructure includes an 80-foot atrium as well as shops and restaurants. The subway station that stops in the Citicorp Center is one of the busiest in the system.
