Condé Nast’s New Headquarter’s Surprise: Open Floor Seating

Details have been trickling in about Condé Nast’s new world headquarters. It’s located at 1 World Trade Center!  It will be Earth-friendly and hi-tech! Plenty of room for Ralph Lauren‘s limosouine!

But how about some not-so-good news for Condé staffers: the New York Post reports that the new office plan calls for open floor seating in the 1 million square feet of office space. In the current office, walled offices are the rule, and “Condé Nasties fought hard for each square inch of office space.”

Uh-oh. So who has the most to lose?

The toniest digs in the Midtown office, which went to upper level executives and chief editors, such as Anna Wintour, of Vogue; Graydon Carter, of Vanity Fair; or David Remnick, of The New Yorker, were huge offices featuring private bathrooms.

Some executive suites were even said to have showers. That is likely to come to a dramatic end.

“They are very interested in the whole cubicle world,” said one insider.

Yes, the “whole cubicle world” sounds glamorous and fascinating, we know. But personally, we’d take the private showers.
