^ It still has a tight grip on broadcasting, and I don't think they're gonna let that go anytime soon. In fact, they did an antenna upgrade within the last year or two.

LinkedIn taps AY to manage Empire State Building expansion

Avison Young’s New York Project Management Division has been selected by LinkedIn to oversee improvements across its New York City headquarters at the Empire State Building, a massive space consisting of more than 500,000 s/f across 11 floors at the iconic Midtown Manhattan office tower.

Avison Young Principal Kirsten Beck and Senior Project Manager Robb Davidson, both based in the firm’s New York office, will head up LinkedIn’s project management team, helping to shape the continued buildout of the vertical campus after the company recently expanded its presence in the property by leasing three additional floors.

“We are thrilled to be working with LinkedIn to improve and expand their New York City headquarters. These changes will shape the future of the LinkedIn workplace for years to come,” Beck said.

“We believe our expertise in project management and construction working with our other tech and innovative clients brings a strong foundation to this project and gives LinkedIn the confidence in our abilities to manage the continued buildout of this remarkable space.”

The New York team, which was awarded the project through a national master service agreement with Avison Young’s Chicago office, will assist with creating cohesion across the 501,509 s/f vertical campus following the professional networking platform’s recent lease expansion that added floors 14, 15 and 16 to its existing space across the third floor and floors 22 through 28.
NEW YORK. World's capital.

“Office buildings are our factories – whether for tech, creative or traditional industries we must continue to grow our modern factories to create new jobs,” said United States Senator Chuck Schumer.
