This 48-floor, glass-and-steel tower in the heart of Times Square reflects the slick aplomb of its eponymous, and largest, former tenant: publishing empire Condé Nast, home of magazines like Vanity Fair, GQ, and The New Yorker. The structure itself, designed by architects Fox & Fowle, P.C.—the same firm responsible for the nearby New York Times building—was among the first in the city to incorporate green design and construction when it opened in 1999, by including energy-efficient light and temperature-control systems, stringent clean-construction standards, and a high percentage of recycled building materials. The building, however, is open to employees only, so onlookers either have to imagine a time when Vogue's Anna Wintour lunched icily in the curvaceous, Frank Gehry–designed fourth-floor cafeteria, or marched past the bright, scallop-ceilinged lobby on her way to a waiting Town Car.
