Time Inc. Might Move Downtown

TimeLifeBuildingRockCenter_articleboxTime Inc. has called midtown home for more than 70 years, but sometimes even the most comfortable surroundings can get old. The New York Times reports that Time Inc. is considering moving to lower Manhattan, specifically a space at 225 Liberty Street in Battery Park.

If Time Inc. does move downtown, it would join Condé Nast (moving to 1 WTC in November) and several other media companies in the area, including AMI, HarperCollins and The Daily News.

In addition to the Battery Park location, Time Inc. is considering 4 World Trade Center and 85 Broad Street.

The reason for the move? Money, of course. There are tax breaks and the rent downtown is $25 less per square foot. History is nice; saving cash is better.

The images are the work of GigaPan, a startup in Portland, OR. Per a report by AP, a lot of effort went into delivering this multimedia wonderland:

Beginning with crude bar-napkin sketches and eventually moving to mechanical engineers working in AutoCAD and then to welders in Asheville, NC, an eight-month process of design and construction resulted in a 13-foot-long aluminum jib calibrated to adhere to the base of the beacon at the top of the tower’s 408-foot. spire. To that rotating arm was attached a Canon 5D Mark II with a 100-mm lens.

Condé Nast Grabs More Downtown Real Estate

Condé Nast isn’t moving to One World Trade Center for about a year, but that hasn’t stopped execs from snatching up more downtown real estate.

Crain’s New York reports that the publishing giant is currently negotiating to take over an 80,000 square foot section of 222 Broadway, between Fulton and Ann.

The deal will allow Condé to add more space for a fraction of the cost. The rent at 222 Broadway is about $40 per square foot, while One WTC’s is in the $60-plus range.
