Time Warner Center
The 750 feet, twin-towered multi-use complex that opened in February 2004 houses the Time Warner World Headquarters, a 250-room/suite Mandarin Oriental luxury hotel, spaces for retail, entertainment, restaurants and offices, 225 luxury apartments, as well as CNN live broadcast production studios and a concert hall for the use of Jazz at Lincoln Center.
Time Warner owns one-third of the complex. The incorporated hotel has the “first” floor of its public areas located over 75 meters above ground and features a spa and a health club. A 500 m² ballroom overlooks Central Park. The cost for the hotel is estimated as $200 million. The building plot was purchased from the Metropolitan Transport Authority for $357 million.
