News Corp. to consider moving locations once lease expires
http://nypost.com/2015/02/09/news-co...lease-expires/

Quote:
News Corp and 21st Century Fox, the separate media giants controlled by Rupert Murdoch, are weighing options for a new Manhattan headquarters when their Midtown leases expire in 2020, sources said.

Possibilities under consideration include moving both companies into a newly constructed office tower, most likely at the World Trade Center or at one of several Hudson Yards sites.

Officials of neither company would comment. But a source familiar with the executives’ thinking said, “21st Century Fox Co-chief Operating Officer James Murdoch and CFO John Nallen are leading a review in consultation with News Corp senior management.”

It was understood Monday night that while the companies’ precise future space needs hadn’t yet been determined, it was “in excess of 1 million square feet” — likely more than their current, combined 1.2 million square feet under several different leases at 1211 and 1185 Sixth Ave.

If 21st Century Fox and News Corp opt for a new headquarters, it could be good news for two major developers. Larry Silverstein needs an anchor tenant to get 2 World Trade Center out of the ground, and Related Cos.’ chief Stephen Ross, who has two Hudson Yards towers going up, needs tenants to start work on two more that are planned.

However, a source cautioned that no decision has been made, and both 21st Century Fox and News Corp might stay in their current Sixth Avenue homes.

While five years remain on their current leases, that is not very long to devise a large and complex real estate strategy for technologically sophisticated media companies and affecting thousands of employees — especially if they decide to go to a brand-new building elsewhere.

News Corp divisions at 1211 and 1185 Sixth Ave. include Dow Jones, which publishes the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Post.

Divisions of 21st Century Fox include Fox News Channel, Fox Sports and some film and broadcast television units.

Hopefully something is announced in the coming months. 2 WTC is my favorite, and I just can't wait until construction resumes. This, Verre and 111 W 57 will be icons on the skyline.

Speaking of construction, I remember someone saying it would time awhile(weeks, months) for them to prep the core and everything if construction was to resume, any truth to that?

That's certainly true, a lot of the equipment that is now on the pad for WTC2 will have to be removed/relocated before construction can begin. There was a lot of work done to seal up the subterranean sections as well as installation of mechanical equipment to support other parts of the complex.

Yes, unlike 3WTC which was never actually "on hold" from a technical standpoint, this one most certainly is and as is stated, an extensive amount of prep work would need to be done prior to restarting construction.

I'm actually surprised construction didn't continue despite the lack of sufficient tenants. 1WTC and 2WTC have a lot of symbolic value for NY and the United States I assume. 'You strike us, we rebuild' kind of thing. It could have been paid partly in advance by the government?

Also Silverstein wasted a fortune in fruitless litigation.

Or better said, "we strike it to justify a war and boost the economy, and we rebuild it again"?

Which in a way makes sense but is also sad. The US spent billions and billions on senseless war, yet struggles to build buildings the same height as ones we built back in the 70's.

I hope this changes someday.

If one were to view the new World Trade Center from the east, like in the pic below (taken while 1WTC was U/C), would the new 1WTC get completely obscured by the new 2WTC once the latter building gets constructed?

Yup. You would be able to see 1WTC's spire and maybe some of top of if though.
