The Woolworth Building in NYC was designed by famed architect Cass Gilbert and was the world’s tallest building at 792 feet when finished in 1913. This early skyscraper was the inspiration for the Lincoln American Tower, built in 1924. It shares the Beaux-Arts style yet is one third the height at 22 stories. The gleaming white high-rise is now Court Square Center. The mixed-use building features apartments, offices and retail space. The property stands on the site of a former Civil War prison.
