One Liberty Plaza is a skyscraper in New York City, United States. It is 743 feet (226 m) tall and has 54 floors. It was built in 1973.

At first it was named the U.S. Steel Building, but later the name was changed to One Liberty Plaza.

The Singer Building, built in 1908 and once the tallest building in the world, was torn down in 1968 to make room for One Liberty Plaza.
