- Plans for the Press Building were developed after consultation with representatives of newspapers, magazines, radio, television and wire and photographic services. The purpose of the building is to provide a convenient comfortable and functional center for the members of the working press and for public relations, publicity and press relation consultants. The building is constructed to provide complete freedom of movement, convenient private and semi-private work areas, and a remarkably flexible space of over 4,000 square feet which can be subdivided into the three major building areas; Press facilities, the Conference Room and the Press Lounge.
- Viewed from the front, the building is 300 feet long, one story in height except at the entrance and reception area which are two stories high. A cantilevered roof curves upward over the entrance. A two story glass facade at the reception lobby frames the main entrance and directly above it, an illuminated mural will be visible fo passers-by. Facilities include a press conference room with elevated platforms to allow for simultaneous interviews by news, television, newsreel and photographic representatives. Movable wall partitions permit quick enlargement of the room for special occasions. There is also a separate lounge for the working press.
