00 g z in o o Ktesifrsft tops ffff irinidBdl (Kldls BY LORE CROGHAN DAILY NEWS BUSINESS WRITER PUBLISHING GIANT Hearst placed the final steel beam atop its 46-story headquarters, designed by celebrity architect Sir Norman Foster. "I feel like a kid on Christmas morning," Hearst CEO Victor Ganzi told guests including Mayor Bloomberg and the top brass of the publications that will move into the innovative tower in summer 2006. Hearst's board decided to go forward with Pritzker Prize winner Lord Foster's project soon after Sept. 1 1. He was hired to add a modern tower to the land-marked six-story headquarters on Eighth Avenue and W. 57th St. At yesterday's ceremony, Gov. Pataki said he was grateful for the vote of confidence the publishing firm gave the city at a dark moment. "We needed a tangible expression from one of our corporations that New York City is still the place to be," he said. Lord Foster told the Daily News that Hearst honchos "never faltered" in their resolve to build. Their attitude was, "If we don't do anything, they the terrorists have won," he said. Lord Foster is famous for modern re-workings of historic buildings like the British Museum and the Reichstag. But his most talked-about design is a London skyscraper nicknamed "the Erotic Gherkin" because of its phallic shape. Though it doesn't look like a big pickle, the Hearst tower is shaping up to be an eye-catcher, with a glass exterior made of rows of steel-edged triangles.

"This will change the landscape of the whole neighborhood," said Jerry Speyer, Hearst's development manager. The unusual design allowed Hearst to cut the amount of construction steel it needed by 20 or 2,000 tons. Hearst is trying to get the United States Green Building Council to certify the tower as an environmentally efficient building. The skyscraper will house 2,000 employees now in several rented offices. Lcroghannydaitynews.com Citigroup set to slash I, from its payroll THE Citigroup, the world's largest bank, is slashing more than 1,000 jobs in its corporate and investment bank to save money. The cuts will affect 2 to 3 of the unit's 48,000 employees worldwide, and are expected at all levels of the unit, a source said. CEO Charles Prince is trying to cut costs and exit businesses not focused on consumer or corporate banking, in a move away from predecessor and mentor Sandy Weill's vision of creating a one-stop financial supermar ket. In a prospectus for an initial public offering, Lazard said expenses will drop as it targets a number of managing directors and founders of its asset management unit. Lazard, run by dealmaker Bruce Wasserstein, wants to slash payroll costs to 57.5 of revenue of revenue from 74. Cuts at Lazard Investment bank Lazard will slash pay and benefits this year by $100 million by letting contracts expire and possibly cutting as many as 300 jobs, as the venerable banking partnership prepares to go public. Verizon fears Some of MCI's top five investors including Leon Cooperman who owns 3 of the company, said they're "not happy" with Verizon's offer to buy the company for $6.3 billion, signaling potential trouble for the bid. Verizon matched an offer from Qwest, sources said. MCI should sell for more, said Cooperman, who runs Omega Advisors. John Paulson, president of MCI's No. 4 shareholder, said a Qwest deal may have more benefits for MCI investors.
