When construction started on the Skirvin Tower in 1931 at the Northwest corner of Park Avenue & Broadway, it was intended to be 26 stories. Resources dwindled, construction was delayed, and plans were scaled back. It was done in 1936 at 14 stories.
Looking Northwest along Broadway.
Balliets was a tenant from 1936-1972. WKY Radio
operated here from 1936-1951 (TV from 1949-1951), occupying 2 floors. The building was gutted and
completely rebuilt in 1971-73 and renamed as the
101 Park Avenue Building.
