The Citigroup Center is located 153 East 53rd Street in [Midtown of Manhattan] (http://www.thesquarefoot.com/new-york-city/office-space/midtown). The height of the Citigroup Center is 915 feet and has 59 floors. The building contains 1.3 million square feet of office space and is one of the most imposing and distinctive high-rises in New Yorks skyline. The main architect behind the building was Edward Larrabee Barnes Associates and The Stubbins Associates, Inc. The architects were recognized with an Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects in 1979. The tower's base is cut away at the four corners, leaving it standing on a cross shaped footing, extending from the core to the center of each side. Citigroup's pitched roof causes it to stand out among other building, making it a powerful symbol of its namesake corporation. The roof is at a 45degree angle because it was intended to have solar panels installed, but the idea was dropped because the position of the roof meant that the panels would not face the sun directly. The building uses Double decker elevator cars because it reduces the area devoted to the vertical circulation core, creating more available space for offices. A computer driven load mass damper ensures stability for the building because of the reduced number of vertical supports. Citigroup Center was the first skyscraper in the U.S. to be built with a tuned mass damper. The overhanging corners were designed after St. Peter's Lutheran Church, which occupied one corner, insisted on keeping its lot and its separate identity. A new church was however built in place of the old one. At one point the tower was considered capable of collapsing in a strong wind. When news came that a storm was coming to the city, emergency crews worked around the clock to reinforce the tower with two inch thick steel plates that were welded over each of the buildings 200 bolted. To help with stabilization, a tuned mass damper was placed in the mechanical space at the top. The damper is designed to counteract any swaying motions because of wind on the building and it reduced the building's movement due to wind by as much as 50%
