    According to Wikipedia the space is underutilized. THe developer who bought the buildings wants to add a 37 story and a 53 story building.

    When Tribune Broadcasting spun off Tribune Publishing they kept the real estate in LA and sold it to a developer. The TImes no longer controlled the real estate and had to move.

    The same thing has evidently happened to Tribune Tower, which is being converted to condos, according to Wikipedia.

    The Boston Herald building where I worked for 20 years is now condos and a Whole Foods on the ground floor. It weirds me out to drive past, but even back in the '80s we all knew the land was far more valuable than the paper.

    My first stop is now a restaurant but the owners haven't taken down the paper's signage over one of the doorways. When I came back and we were in a new location, having people come to the office was tricky because some would think we were at the restaurant because of that sign.
