NEW YORK | 217 W. 42nd Street | Times Sq. Theatre


Curious what’s happening with the Times Sq. Theatre (217 W. 42nd). Not much has happened there in 30 years.


as of last year:

Cahan said she and Mendelson, who is now at Colliers International, are in talks with another prospective tenant who would renovate the property for a non-theater use, but declined to comment further.


I saw on ACRIS that a lease with signed with Stillman Development.


Stillman last year signed a 73-year lease for the space, and plans to restore its architectural features while lifting the theater’s limestone façade by five feet to create higher ceilings on the ground floor.

The developer will also construct a two-story glass box and outdoor space.


More details in Forbes, which broke the story.


Ouch. Just… ouch. Yep, this looks like times square alright… At least its being reactivated and won’t sit derelict. I was naively hoping they wouldnt tarnish it.
