Broadcaster ABC may follow JPMorgan Chase’s example and build a new headquarters in Manhattan.
The Disney subsidiary is looking at a Trinity Church-owned development site at 4 Hudson Square, the New York Post reported. The lot, which includes an office building, could allow for a building of up to 1.2 million square feet.
“They are looking at that property site and others with the criteria that it’s the best building to meet their 21st- century technology needs,” a Disney spokesperson told the Post.
ABC recently agreed to sell its current headquarters on West 66th Street to SIlverstein Properties for more than $1 billion. The broadcaster will likely lease it back for a few years until a new headquarters is ready. [NYP] — Konrad Putzier
