Designed by Foster + Partners, the tower takes the title of the city's tallest and will house NBC studios at the base, office space above, and a Four Seasons hotel at the top twelve floors.
The tower is designed for LEED Platinum and features thirteen three-storey sky gardens rising up the eastern facade. The top of the tower is marked by a spire of illuminated glass blades extending 125 feet above the final floor.
