    The New York Times Company plans to borrow up to $225 million against its mid-Manhattan headquarters building, to ease a potential cash flow squeeze as the company grapples with tighter credit and shrinking profits.
    The company has retained Cushman & Wakefield, the real estate firm, to act as its agent to secure financing, either in the form of a mortgage or a sale-leaseback arrangement, said James M. Follo, the Times Company’s chief financial officer.

    The Times Company owns 58 percent of the 52-story, 1.5 million-square-foot tower on Eighth Avenue, which was designed by the architect Renzo Piano, and completed last year. The developer Forest City Ratner owns the rest of the building. The Times Company’s portion of the building is not currently mortgaged, and some investors have complained that the company has too much of its capital tied up in that real estate.

    Read the rest here.

    The NY Times is mortgaging its headquarters to pay its bills. I desperately want to be the guy in the black top hat and cape who gets to throw them out in the cold when they can't pay the mortgage. Anybody got any mustache wax? :D

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
