TIMES SQUARE/WEST SIDE
Times Square is one of the best-known of all New York place names. It's the heart of Manhattan's legendary Broadway Theater District, the place where our nation's newspaper of record, the New York Times, is published, and a thrilling environment of pulsing electric signs.

But until recently, Times Square was not an office rentals district. After the neighborhood endured a steep decline, the 1980s rezoning of the West Side of Midtown, together with a variety of government-sponsored efforts to rid the area of unsavory uses, led to an NYC office space boom that has made Times Square into an extremely sought-after New York City corporate address.
The theaters, the lights, and the New York Times are all still there--the Times in a sleek new tower on Eighth Avenue designed by the esteemed architect Renzo Piano. They have been joined by the likes of Condé Nast, the publisher of such magazines as the New Yorker, Vanity Fair, and Vogue; Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom, one of the city's largest law firms; Reuters, the international news agency; Ernst & Young, the giant accounting firm; and Bertelsmann, the global publishing conglomerate.

The Sixth Avenue lines are nearby, as is Grand Central Terminal and the Metro North Railroad.

The distinctive 750 Seventh Avenue (1989) at 49th Street was designed by the distinguished firm of Kevin Roche and John Dinkeloo.

The West Midtown rezoning affected more than just Times Square. The 54-story tower at 787 Seventh Avenue, between 51st and 52nd streets, was built as the Equitable Center and then became AXA Center when the venerable Equitable was acquired by the French insurance giant.
Hotels abound in the district, which is a magnet for tourists. The Theater District is right there, and so is Carnegie Hall. Restaurants of all price ranges abound.
And the lights are as bright as ever.
