"immense volume" is an understatement.
Measuring "1.2 million square feet of floor area on a plot of just under an acre, or a floor area of almost 30 time the site's area . it exploited the site as no building has before."
"The hue and cry after Equitable's completion led to the adoption of the nation's first comprehensive zoning resolution, in 1916."
