The Walt Hemmingway Tower also called "The Hemmingway Hotwire" was built by millionaire Walt Hemmingway to supply jobs during the Great Depression. The Walt Hemmingway Tower was started in 1929 and continued for six long years as Walt Hemmingway constantly changed designs and added new designs. It finished in 1936 with 87 complete stories
During World War II, The Walt Hemmingway Tower's lobby held many dances for soldiers and let soldiers sleep in it's rooms for free. In 1947, shortly after the war, Hemmingway turned it into a large commerical building used for broadcasting news and other forms of media and the building was nicknamed "Hemmingway Hotwire" and remained such for the remainder of it's life.
In 1999, during the T-Virus Outbreak, the tower became completely infect before hand due to the bridge to Riverside being connected. It was far too late when the bridge was blown up and many barricades cut Market Street from Uptown preventing further infection. The building was also where The Pride landed to begin Operation: Underlight, it was destroyed on Feburary 11th, 1999 along with the rest of the city.
