Tower That Will Loom 625 Foot into
Nw . the Skies.
New York Herald.
Completed plans have been filed
in the -building department of the
new Singer Building with its 41-story
tower . The location is to be the site
of the present. Singer Building, en
larged by adjacent property.
The tower will be 625 'Feot, high,
the highest commercial building ever
known and higher than any church
spire in the United States. Its con
struction will 'present n' -lovel pro

The erection of the walls, the provi

the foundation can all be readily
The wind strain will require anoth
or set of calculations. Even in binid
ings of moderate height the wind
strain m'ust be .considered. It is qine
of the most delicate factors of cal
culation in large bridges. Where a
bridge is built on piers, so tihat, the
wind leverage acts more closely to
the point of support, the strain is
nothing like so great as in I sispen
sion bridge. So in a tall building the
win(d strain increases theoretically as
the square of the height and practical
ly somewhat more, as a high tower
has not the protection of surrounding
The greater the base in superficial
area the easier it is to construct a
high tower safely. But the new Sin
ger tower will be anchored to a 41
story building with a large base, so
that the engineering proble' of tle
wind strain is larrely confined to
the lower strietlure above the 14-story
main building, and the foundation
problem concerns only the struet'ural
