NBC Canvassing Manhattan for Green Office Space

NBC is rumored to be searching for new office space and could land at one of Manhattan’s newest and highest profile green office buildings.

According to the New York Observer, NBC is considering office space at both LEED Gold 7 World Trade Center and SJP Properties’ LEED Gold hopeful 11 Times Square. The network most recently visited 7 WTC on June 2, where the top ten floors of the tower remain available at asking rents around $75 per square foot. “NBC has been back to 7 World Trade Center a number of times, with executives and different division heads poring over the building,” a source told the Observer.

Nevertheless, another source claims that NBC is now focusing on 11 Times Square (lobby pictured), which is still seeking an anchor tenant, as well as other spaces along 8th Avenue. The network hopes to move its business operations into whatever new space it chooses sometime during 2009 in connection with a major overhaul of its operations at 30 Rockefeller Center.

    It is so good to read about green roofs and green buildings.

    I was in China in January and it was awful. There wasn’t a single clear day out of five. Then you look out onto the city and flat roof, one after the other. If they would just plant green roofs, people could breath easier.
