Transcript Positioning a section of outer wall Construction continues, fair weather or foul 14 domestic expansion: The Corporation currently has five domestic hotel projects under construction, which, when completed, will contain 5,325 guest rooms. Largest of these projects is The New York Hilton, a 45- story, 2,125-room hotel in Rockefeller Center. Steel erection has begun on the 92,000 square foot leased site between 53rd and 54th streets on the west side of the Avenue of the Americas. Completion of the building is scheduled for 1963. This hotel is being constructed by Uris Buildings Corporation, a 50 per cent stockholder in the owning company, Rock-Hil- Uris, Inc. Hilton Hotels has entered into a 20-year management contract with the owner with renewal options. The New York Hilton will have all its public rooms in the four-story base of the building. Exhibit space of 130,000 square feet will be far greater than in any existing New York hotel. The main ballroom, with capacity for seating 4,200 guests at dinner and more than 5,000 for a meeting, will be as complete with stage equipment and lighting as any modern theatre. The hotel will have 34 additional private dining and function rooms in which 2,500 more persons can be seated. The sales staff has booked many conventions and functions for this hotel. All of the guest rooms will be in the 41-story tower. The rooms will be unusually large with high ceilings and handsome furnishings. The hotel will be a strikingly attractive building of modern design and will have a character and appeal different from the other Hilton Hotels in New York City. Arrangements have been made for permanent financing in the amount of $30,000,000. ^S»mf>
