Mayer –Yahoo’s CEO- has been surprising everyone with important decisions.
took the polemic decision of telling all of Yahoo’s members to work from the
actual office, ending the remote-working era for the company.
the company made two announcements: they would buy Tumblr for $1.1 billion, and
the other news was they would be unifying all their New York team in one office in Times Square.
bringing all their team together under one roof, their 500 staff members were
divided in 3 buildings in Manhattan: 1065 Avenue of the Americas (at 40th
Street), 1540 Broadway (at 45th Street) and 11 West 19th Street.
New York office lease has been signed at the former home of The New York Times
on 43rd street, the company will take the 9th through the
12th floor of the building and is talking to city officials to have
a large illuminated sign with its name at the top of the building. This new
space will be renovated following other tech companies that include open
spaces, outdoor terraces, free food cafeterias, game and relaxing areas; these
type of amenities have also become a reason to attract new talent.
not only represents Yahoo’s growth, but also shows how new technology is replacing traditional media like newspapers. Just as some years ago
financial companies took over downtown, today companies such as Microsoft,
Facebook and Google are taking over areas like Chelsea and Times Squares.
