MLB TV Network Offices will be built in Harlem

The NY Times reported that Major League Baseball plans to
build a home on 125th Street, for its cable
network, which is scheduled to make its debut early next year with some 50
million subscribers. The planned building, to be developed by Vornado Realty
Trust, would rise 21 stories in an interlocking set of luminescent glass cubes
at
125th Street
and Park Avenue. “
Harlem
Park will be the area’s first Class-A
office tower in decades and will attract major tenants, showcasing the economic
growth under way in
Harlem,” said Robert C.
Lieber, the deputy mayor for economic development. “We’re still negotiating
with Vornado and Major League Baseball, and if we are able to get it done, it
will be a home run for the entire area.”
