Historical Note

In December 1956 Time Inc. announced plans to construct a new Time & Life Building in cooperation with Rockefeller Center, Inc. located at 1271 Avenue of the Americas. Harrison, Abramovitz, & Harris were the architects. Around 1954 Time Inc. created the New Building Department, headed by Henry "Hank" Luce III and assisted by vice president Allen Grover, to oversee the project. This department may have developed from the Publisher's Subcommittee on Housing.
