Architect Fox & Fowle
Reuters is constructing their new headquarters to the north of the 42nd Street, adjacent to the 1 Times Square and Paramount Building. The building (like the 4 Times Square, also designed by Fox & Fowle) features, along with the facade with square-grid openings, also a large, curving glass wall facing the corner of 42nd Street and Seventh Avenue. The building is scheduled for completion in 2001.
Tishman is serving as Construction Manager for this 32-story, 855,000 square foot office tower in Times Square at the corner of 42nd Street and Seventh Avenue. The building’s design incorporates energy-conserving technology. The facade, a curtainwall of stone and glass with metal panels, will let in natural light while blocking most heat energy.
Offices surround the building’s core to maximize access to daylight. The walls are so efficient that the building will never have to be heated. The entire building is wired to be a high-tech center. Optical fiber and advanced copper communications gear accompany antennae and satellite dishes on the roof.
