The Chrysler Building
The Chrysler Building was constructed in 1930 and has been an iconic building in New York City. The Chrysler Building is known for its Art Deco-styled architecture and has been featured in several movies over the years. Americans have always owned the amazing skyscraper until the Abu Dhabi Investment Council decided to purchase a majority of the ownership in 2008 for $800 million.
The Abu Dhabi Investment Council ended up selling the ownership to an Austrian company named SIGNA for $150 million. The Abu Dhabi Investment Council lost a lot of money and was glad to get it off their hands.
