Time Warner Center

This recently completed development with its 750 foot towers reside at Columbus Circle, an area which has posed design difficulties. It is an intersection for Central Park West and South, Eighth Avenue and Broadway. It is the site of the former New York Coliseum building, a very unattractive structure built in 1954 and finally demolished in 2000.
The battle amongst the many proposals was won by SOM (Skidmore, Owings & Merrill). The new glass and steel center consists of offices for Time Warner on the lower floors, a retail complex on the ground floor, the Mandarin Oriental Hotel on floors 34-54, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and One Central Park luxury condominiums, located on the upper floors.
