Pace University, Lower Manhattan, NYC

This is One Pace Plaza across from City Hall. It was built in 1969 and designed by Eggers and Higgins, a prolific firm which came out of John Russell Pope’s office, completed his work on the Jefferson Memorial, and designed numerous structures around New York City, including at the 1939 World’s Fair. I featured the firm’s work in one of earliest posts on this blog. Both leaders of the firm were deceased by the time this building was built. In the background of the second shot you can see just the top of the tower building of the Pace complex which houses freshmen dorms and administrative offices. The entire complex was built within a 1960s urban renewal area and replaced two early skyscrapers seen here and here.
