Facebook Inc. apparently isn’t moving into Vornado Realty Trust’s planned 15 Penn Plaza office tower, according to a new report.
“We constantly re-evaluate our facilities needs and we don’t have anything new to share about our plans in New York at this time,” Facebook spokesperson Anthony Harrison told Bloomberg in an email.
Vornado did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Real Deal.
Last week the real estate investment trust released renderings for its 15 Penn skyscraper, which is currently the Hotel Pennsylvania at 401 Seventh Avenue. The images showed Facebook’s logo on the building, and Vornado CEO Steve Roth said in a conference call that the firm was seeking technology tenants for its Farley Post Office redevelopment project.
But Bloomberg’s source said that Vornado had proposed the site to the social media giant, but Facebook wasn’t interested.
