ABC’s complex of office buildings and studios runs along West 66th Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue, and includes the 22-story, 420,000-square-foot property at 77 West 66th Street.
Silverstein signed a soft contract in April and went hard on it several weeks later, sources said.
The developer will likely demolish the existing buildings, but its plans were not immediately clear. Sources said the complex was marketed as both development opportunity for luxury residential condominiums or as a new office complex.
Demolition would not occur for at least a few more years, as the broadcaster is expected to lease the space back until a new headquarters is ready.
