Time Warner Center

An exemplary super-modern mixed-use skyscraper of the type pioneered and perfected in the less developed but more rapidly developing world, the Time Warner Center isn't the kind of building New Yorkers tend to view positively, and yet they have embraced it not just for its practical value but its aesthetic elements since its opening in 2003.

An exemplary super-modern mixed-use skyscraper of the type pioneered and perfected in the less developed but more rapidly developing world, the Time Warner Center isn't the kind of building New Yorkers tend to view positively, and yet they have embraced it not just for its practical value but its aesthetic elements since its opening in 2003. (Catty-corner from an atrocious Trump building, the Time Warner Center looks like a twentieth century masterpiece by comparison.) The first several floors are open to the public, and house a small, discriminating mall of upscale stores, a capacious Whole Foods supermarket, a high-end gym (named New York's gayest by Gawker), several restaurants (including New York's most expensive, Per Se), and a state-of-the-art performance space, called, peculiarly, Jazz at Lincoln Center (Lincoln Center being seven blocks away). From this single facade rises two enormous glass towers, which, constructed in the year or so after September 11th, were seen as an eerie counterpoint to the stalled reconstruction efforts at Ground Zero, and which house offices (including CNN offices), residences, and the boutique Mandarin Hotel.
