As the Chron considers selling is Fifth and Mission offices and leasing space elsewhere in SF, its parent, Hearst Corp., has opened a 46-story office tower in New York that received a glowing review from The New York Times this morning (June 9). Reviewer Nicolai Ouroussoff gushes: “This 46-story tower may be the most muscular symbol of corporate self-confidence to rise in New York since the 1960’s, when Modernism was in full bloom, and most Americans embraced technological daring as a sure route to social progress.” What will it be like to work at headquarters? “[M]ost offices have sweeping views to the north and south. The building’s exterior diamond-shaped pattern results in lovely canted glass walls in the corners of each floor that serve as communal areas for office employees. On the top level a corporate dining room offers a view to the east framed by two-story-tall triangular braces.”
