Conde Nast considers move to WTC site

The New York Times is reporting that Conde Nast, the publisher of the New Yorker and Vogue among others, is considering taking up residence in the Freedom Tower. The publishing magnet is reportedly in talks to occupy as much as 1 million square feet in the Daniel Libeskind-designed tower, which would make it a major tenant. Other tenants that have signed on so far include Vantone, a real estate company, and various state and federal agencies, which have committed to 1.2 million square feet of space in the building.

If the report bears true, it is good news for the tower, which has had difficulty attracting non-governmental clients. It is also welcome news for the Lower Manhattan neighborhood, which will get a new influx of non-financial types, diversifying the community as well as putting a fashionable face on it.
