    any idea when the other tenants will move in? the official website gave the spring of this year as the move-in date.

    False. I know someone who works at the NYT and he told me last week that the move will be staggered among departments, beginning in late April (yes April!) and concluding in June.

    I find it annoying that Turner takes credit for NYT when all they're contracted to build is the interior.

    National law firm Goodwin Procter LLP will lease more than 216,000 square feet on seven floors at the under-construction New York Times tower on Eighth Avenue between 40th and 41st streets. The transaction's lease rates were not disclosed. The building's office space is now nearly fully leased. The Renzo Piano-designed skyscraper will open this fall.

    As for Turner, since AMEC the builder is pulling out of the US market, Turner will be the only firm that can market its presence in the building for there RFP submission

    I'm simply relaying what I heard from my acquaintance. According to him, a moving schedule has been distributed to NYT employees and it begins in April. Would they lie to their own workers?

    Obviously it's difficult to tell from street level, but some of the lower floors (like in the 4-10 range) appear to have reached a nearly habitable state. However, the lobby looks like it needs a lot more work yet. And the subway entrance at 40th & Eighth is nothing but a rubble-filled hole.

    Maybe the first wave of workers to move in will be required to wear hard hats at their desks.

    Speaking of that, yesterday I saw a group of Times workers wearing hard hats on their way yo the new building. Also, last nite many of the lower floors appear to have boxes and file cabinets visible from the outside. there was also new lights on in one of the upper floors.

    My understanding is that Structuretone landed the NYTimes interiors contract.

    Perhaps Structure Tone is doing the fit-out for the other non-anchor tenants.

    Here's an interesting line from that article:

    "Flack + Kurtz spent much time with Piano testing the limits of the ceramic rod spacing. Piano wanted big spaces to achieve his vision of transparency; F+K wanted closely spaced rods to limit heat gain."

    Unfortunately, it doesn't elaborate any further. It would be interesting to know how the compromise worked itself out.

    Nope. They got the NY Times portion.
