The design and building is described of a steel framed building set upon a concrete platform and utilizing a modified tube structure. For lateral load resistance, numerous transfers occur throughout the structure to facilitate design considerations and site constraints. The building was constructed over train tracks, which meant that one corner was unaccessible for foundation placements. This and other site constraints are described. The use of overhead truss, the unbalanced floor loads, and the transfer system are discussed. Details of the design and construction of the 26-story building are summarized.
