Eastdil’s Harmon tapped to market Time Warner Center

Media giant Time Warner hired Eastdil Secured’s Doug Harmon last month to market its 1.1 million-square-foot Midtown headquarters and determine what it would receive for the building, Reuters reported. The mega-company is reportedly preparing to leave the Time Warner Center or consolidate its more than 4 million square feet of New York City office space. If the company does decide to sell the building, which is located in Columbus Circle, the two-tower complex could command prices of roughly $1,000 per square foot for a total price north of $1 billion, according to the Wall Street Journal. In February, Time Warner had reached out to Eastdil Secured, Jones Lang LaSalle and Studley to aid in the property’s valuation, the Journal reported.
