Al Jazeera Considers Former New York Times Building

Al Jazeera Amercia, the cable channel from Al Jazeera, is rumored to launch this summer. In advance of the debut, the network needs a home. According to The Wall Street Journal, that might be 229 W. 43rd Street, the former New York Times haunt. Al Jazeera is considering the building for its new channel, along with several other locations across Manhattan.

The main attraction to the former New York Times building is that it’s already wired for a digital media venture. The drawback is that there might be too many columns in the building for the studios Al Jazeera wants to construct.

For now, Al Jazeera is renting space in a building on 34th between 8th and 9th.
