The NY Post is reviving rumors that Sotheby’s may be considering a move to Hudson Yards. Three years ago, the scenario was on offer, including renderings (above):
We hear Hudson Yards’ lead developer, the Related Cos. Chairman Stephen Ross, is also making a big play to snag Sotheby’s.
Ross now owns Time Warner’s Columbus Circle offices and studios, which will be vacant when they move to his Hudson Yards project, giving him two scenarios in which to land Sotheby’s.
Since Ross enjoys taking over other people’s properties once they rent or buy from him, don’t be surprised if he ends up with Sotheby’s current building.
Update: Sotheby’s CFO Michael Goss responds to the Post’s pot stirring with this coy statement:
“We have two options — we can stay where we are, or we can move somewhere else in Manhattan — and we have no time pressure to decide anything.”
