New York Times Will Vacate 8 Floors In Its HQ To Generate "Significant Rental Revenue"

• http://www.zerohedge.com, Tyler Durden

Perhaps it was subscriptions for the crossword puzzle because it appears the monetary success was not smashing enough, and according to a just released note from executives Arthur Sulzberger and Mark Thompson, the newspaper will vacate at least eight floors in its iconic building, allowing it to "generate significant rental income" because it is "frankly, too expensive to occupy this many floors when we don't truly need them."

Maybe the lesson here is that when the newspaper business model no longer works, one can just pivot into a REIT?

The remaining staff will be consolidated on the remaining, redesigned floors in a "more dynamic, modern and open workplace, one that is better suited to the moment."

Furthermore, the NYT publisher and CEO will lose their corner offices, which they call a "vestige from a different era" and will "introduce more team rooms and common spaces."
