Transparent news reporting is essential to the success of media companies such as The New York Times Company. The Times' new building is a reflection of the newspaper's evolution within this context. Located in the tower's all-glass podium, the newsrooms are closer to the public and engage the streetscape with the energy of breaking news. Gensler designed the tower's energy-efficient interior spaces to be light and open, fostering collaboration among staff. Automatic lighting and shading maximize daylight; and the sustainable materials selected for furniture and finishes further promote a healthy office environment.
