Times Square Tower is a 47-story, 726-foot (221 m) office tower located at 7 Times Square in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, standing at West 41st Street.[2]

Started in 2002 and completed in 2004, the tower contains Class A office space.[2][1] Some of the most prominent features of the Times Square Tower are its billboards, several of which hang on the building's façade.[1] Most of the large signs are found near the base, but one 4-story sign is found above the middle of the building. Towards the end of 2011, an electronic billboard replaced the static billboard towards the top of the tower.[1] The building is also known for the zig-zag patterns on its exterior.

Originally, this building's tenant was planned to be Arthur Andersen.[1] The firm signed a lease in October 2000, but then backed out in 2002 after the Enron scandal.[1][3]
