3 Times Square, also known as the Thomson Reuters Building, is a 32 floor skyscraper in the Times Square district of Midtown Manhattan, New York City, United States. Located on 7th Avenue between 42nd Street and 43rd Street, the building was part of the large 42nd Street redevelopment project. Built in by Tishman Construction,[2] the 885,000-square-foot (82,200 m2) building serves as the headquarters of Thomson Reuters.[3] The building is also home to the New York City offices for BMO Capital Markets, Bain & Company,[4] and FTI Consulting.[5] Large street level retailers include Quiksilver, AT&T, JP Morgan Chase Bank, Skechers, and Cafe Europa. Like most structures in Times Square, the building has numerous large electronic advertising displays across multiple facades.

The facade is composed of a stone and glass curtain walls with metal panels, which promotes natural daylighting. The building was designed to be energy efficient and does not require heating. The building is also equipped with dual gas/electric cooling systems to allow for operation based on electricity or gas rates.[2]
