The Post fires a potshot at its rival, saying the NYTimes is looking to rent out even more than the five floors of its Renzo Piano-designed new headquarters than it had planned. With the commercial market so hot and the news business hurting, the Times has moved some employees into lower priced office space to get the extra revenue from renting out floors.
If you missed the link at the end o' day yesterday, do tune in to the starchitect's recent Metropolis interview to hear Renzo waxing rhapsodic about viewing his creation: "In some way, this is a special moment when your dreams become reality and you begin to discover the atmosphere that is impossible to design. So now it's more about space, scale and feeling than physical beings." Oh, exactly.
