Introducing the paper Mr. Frischmann said that large diameter piles, with the help of soil engineering, offered us the possibility of economically founding buildings of the same height as those seen on the Manhattan skyline.

The framework was designed in reinforced concrete and had to sustain a loading of approximately 1000 tons.
