Its top is 785 feet above the sidewalk, and its foundation is 120 feet below it, so that its total height from foundation to summit is 905 feet. It contains 23,000 tons of structural steel, 17,000,000 bricks, and 1,800,000 square feet of floor tiles. Its weight is computed to be 125,000 tons, and its cost is $12,000,000. The building covers a plot 155 by 200 feet and is U-shaped in plan. There are thirty stories in the main building, the roof of which stands 400 feet above the street.
