New York's Chrysler Building put up for sale

New York, Jan 10 (IANS): | Publish Date: 1/10/2019 12:00:00 AM IST

Chrysler Building, the art deco skyscraper that has been a key part of the New York city skyline for nearly 90 years, is up for sale.


The building has been owned by Mubadala, an Abu Dhabi investment fund, and real estate firm Tishman Speyer since 2008, CNN reported. 

They have hired CBRE Group to sell the property, according to Darcy Stacom, Chairman of CBRE's New York City capital markets group. 

"Clearly, it's an iconic building with tremendous reputational value for the right buyer," Brian Lott, spokesperson for Mubadala, said on Wednesday.

When the building was completed in 1930, it was the tallest in the world, a title it held for about a year until the Empire State Building opened less than a mile away in midtown Manhattan.

Today it is only the sixth tallest building in the city and will drop down another notch later this year when a new office tower opens on the city's west side. 

But it is still one of New York's most recognizable buildings. 

It is famous for its triangle-shaped, vaulted windows worked into the stylised crown, along with its distinctive eagle gargoyles near the top. 

Launched on December 3,1990. Nagaland Post is the first and highest circulated newspaper of Nagaland state. Nagaland Post is also the first newspaper in Nagaland to be published in multi-colour.
