Circle

I think this building works great as a corner to central Park. In fact, I think it would be great if the park had something like this on every corner. If I am correct from my time on Google earth, the northeast corner has a rather shabby looking old building... hmmm, now if only I had a few billion dollars.

Time Warner Trims Its Excesses

By AMY CHOZICK

Published: October 31, 2011

New York Times Business Section

Quote:
The sprawling taupe-colored offices of Jeffrey L. Bewkes, Time Warner’s chairman and chief executive, overlook Central Park from the 11th floor of one of Manhattan’s most plum pieces of commercial real estate. Mr. Bewkes cannot wait to move out.

To him, the company’s corporate headquarters in the gleaming towers of the Time Warner Center is an “indulgence,” a giant reminder of past mistakes made by one of the world’s largest media companies. “There was a burgeoning overhead reaching $500 million a year, including this edifice you’re sitting in,” Mr. Bewkes said.

Time Warner, one of New York City’s largest commercial tenants, is now studying how to consolidate most of its four million square feet of office space. That probably means finding a new headquarters in a less expensive part of Manhattan and vacating the Time Warner Center, the Time & Life building at Rockefeller Center and many of its remaining 13 New York-area buildings. The company estimated that cutting back on its real estate footprint could save as much as $150 million a year.

The real estate moves are part of a larger effort to slim down a company that many investors say they believe became bloated during the acquisition frenzy of the last decade, when media companies raced to acquire expensive Internet companies. The failure of the 2000 AOL-Time Warner merger, widely considered one of the worst corporate marriages of all time, and other debacles like News Corporation’s $545 million loss on MySpace, have motivated companies to rebalance.

Could them make them taller?

Since Time Warner is thinking of moving to the new WTC, making these towers get more space for demand would be the best thing to ever happen,giving the Central Park skyline a much taller view. They just need to be over 1,000 feet and I'll be amazed even more.

IMO the best development of the last decade, considering they were the first big towers to be completed after 9/11.

I guess they are the replacements. Would like them to be taller though.
