The U.S. Steel Building was built in 1972 for the U.S. Steel Company on a site earlier occupied by the Singer Building.
The Singer Building was the world’s tallest at 612 feet when it was built in 1908.
The building’s name changed to 1 Liberty Plaza when the United States Steel company relocated.
The building was bought by Merrill Lynch, then Olympia & York, and most recently Brookfield Financial Properties.
