Overview

The Bell Laboratories building was one of Eero Saarinen's last major commisssions. The original building was constructed between 1959 and 1962 and later expanded in 1966 and 1982 by Roche and Dinkaloo. It served the needs of the Bell Laboratories division of Bell Telephone, and tis successor companies, until it was put ip for sale by Alcatel-Lucent in 2006. The two-million square foot building remained empty and unused until 2013 when it was purchased by Somerset Development who as part of their planned adaptive reuse, has worked to get the building listed as an historic landmark.
