WNYC leaving Municipal Building soon

June 06, 2008 07:35AM

After broadcasting from the Municipal Building in Lower Manhattan for 84 years, WNYC is nearing its move to Hudson Square. The station will leave behind its cramped 24th-floor office for two and a half floors on Varick Street, a couple of blocks north of the Holland Tunnel. Hosts will have their own studios for the first time. The station will get 40 percent more floor space, double their own recording studios and booths and a street-level auditorium for live broadcasts and concerts. The move will cost $61.3 million, plus the new cost of rent; the station had rent-free space in the Municipal Building. In its April issue, The Real Deal reported on where media companies were moving.
