NYC – Times Square: Condé Nast Building and One Times Square

April 1st, 2016

A few nice FM Radio images I found:

NYC – Times Square: Condé Nast Building and One Times Square
FM Radio
Image by wallyg
The Condé Nast Building, officially Four Times Square, a January 2000 postmodern design by Fox & Fowle, was built as part of the 42nd Street Development Plan. At 48 stories and 809 ft (247 m), it was the 10th tallest building in New York. The major office space tenants are magazine publishing company Condé Nast Publications and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, the wealthiest U.S. law firm. It houses the ESPN Zone on the ground floor. NASDAQ’s MarketSite–a 7-story cylindrical tower with a high-tech electronic display–is located at the northwest corner of the building. It is the world’s largest LED display and cost more than M to build. The ground floor of the MarketSite contains a television studio with a wall of monitors and an arc of windows looking out onto Times Square. During 2002 and 2003, the existing radio antenna, built for Clear Channel Communications as a backup transmitter site for its four FM stations, was removed and replaced with a 358-foot mast to support television and radio broadcasters who were displaced by the destruction of the World Trade Center. Including the antenna it is the second tallest structure in the New York.

The Condé Nast Building has two orientations–on the side facing Broadway it takes on the character of Times Square and its active and dynamic environment, and on the side facing 42nd Street it takes on the more sober characteristics of the mid-town Manhattan business community. Environmentally friendly gas-fired absorption chillers, along with a high-performing insulating and shading curtain wall, ensure that the building does not need to be heated or cooled for the majority of the year. Office furniture is made with biodegradable and non-toxic materials. The air-delivery system provides 50% more fresh air than is required by New York City Building Code, and a number of recycling chutes serve the entire building.

One Times Square is best known as the building iupon which the famous New Year’s Times Square Ball drop is performed annually. It was originally built by the New York Times in 1904 as a headquarters for their operations, and at 25-stories, 395 ft (120 m) it was the second tallest building in the world. The Times celebrated its opening with a fireworks display on January 1, 1905, at midnight, starting an annual celebration that continues to this day. The famous New Year’s Eve Ball drop tradition began in 1907, adapted from the United States Naval Observatory practice of dropping a Time Ball down a flag pole every day at noon.

During World War II in the early 1940s, the ball lowering was stopped for two years due to a wartime conservation of energy. A celebration was still held, but the crowds observed a minute of silence.

Less than ten years after moving to One Times Square, The New York Times moved its corporate headquarters to a nearby building, 229 West 43rd Street, in 1913. In 1928, the famous electric news ticker display near the base of the building was first used to announce the results of the US presidential election of 1928. Spanning the base of the entire building, the sign was originally comprised of 14,800 lamps. The ticker was dark for a decade between 1975 and 1985, when Newsday sponsored its revival. Today it is sponsored by Dow Jones, the parent of The Wall Street Journal.

In the 1960’s, the building was purchased by Allied Chemical, who modified the facade by replacing the granite and terracotta elements with marble facing and simple concrete paneling. Today, the cost of renovating the building with central air conditioning has largely left it unoccupied occasionally shuffling retail tenants on the first few floors. The operators don’t seem to mind as they take in more than enough rent money for the building’s 26 signs.
