Building Description

The building known as "Black Rock" sits at 38 stories like a dark ruler in Central Midtown. The CBS Building was originally built in 1963 for the CBS radio broadcasting network. Today, it is 817,000 square feet of office space. Some of its conveniences include a 24-hour attendant for the marble-clad lobby; secure key card access, a cafeteria, and 16 high-speed elevators.

The exterior aesthetics are what make the building so interesting; in a sea of glass and light-colored stone throughout New York City, this black Canadian limestone structure is highly recognizable. In addition to its unique outward appearance, it has an earth-friendly and ecologically conscious roof made up of drought-resistant plants that absorb water runoff and help to heat and cool the building. Just a few steps from the B, D, F, and M subway lines, and close to Rockefeller and Radio City Music Hall, the CBS Building is both convenient and distinctive.
