Not so impressive from a distance, but great details:

NYC - Chanin Building

5429 / chanin building, nyc by janeland, on Flickr


The Chanin Building, at 122 East 42nd Street, was designed by Sloan & Robertson from 1927-1930 with Irwin S. Chanin, one of the most notable developers in the city, and closely modeled on Eliel Saarinen's plan for the Chicago Tribune Building. This 56-story Art Deco structure, reaching 649 feet, was the third tallest building in the world when completed and is one of the most significant New York skyscrapers of the 1920's, as it is one of the earliest with a solid base, setback massing, and a buttressed crown that was once illuminated at night.

My favourite classic skyscraper in Toronto is Commerce Court North. It topped out in 1931 and is 145m tall.

Wow, I never realized how much Toronto (and Canada, for that matter), were lacking in terms of classical, heritage-type skyscrapers. Not a single 150m+ art deco 'scraper. I had previously assumed that a country bordering the Home of the Skyscraper (good 'ol USA), the land of maple syrup, would have at least 1 significant old 'scraper. Im sad to see that I was wrong... Oh, well, there are still a good amount of small nice old skyscrapers in Canada, I suppose. Eh!
