London may have Piccadilly Circus, but New York City has Columbus Circle, one of the City’s most notable landmarks aptly named for the famed explorer. This major intersection is the grand gateway to Central Park. Overlooking this traffic hub like a paternal guardian is the Time Warner Center, which is now ranked in the top 150 places to see while visiting New York City.
Time Warner is a twin-tower building developed by AREA Property Partners (formerly known as Apollo Real Estate Advisors) and The Related Companies in New York City. Its design, by David Childs and Mustafa Kemal Abadan of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), consists of two 750-foot (229 m) twin towers bridged by a multi-story atrium podium containing upscale retail shops.
