40-Story Tower -- typical floor plan

This plan, published by the St. Louis Globe-Democrat newspaper on Sunday 31 May 1931, illustrates the design concept for combining two existing structures to the North and South of the new 40-story tower to create one coherent building. Two banks of elevators serve the upper stories and two banks serve the lower stories.
