DISNEY AMONG FINALISTS FOR TIMES SQUARE BUILDING
Published February 17, 1995
Walt Disney Co. is among three finalists for developing a hotel and entertainment complex on 42nd St. and 8th Avenue in New York, joining Marriot Int'l and Milstein Properties. The "tower will be the western cornerstone of the long-awaited 42nd Street Development Project." The Disney group, who call themselves Dream Team Associates, says that Sega has "expressed an interest" in leasing the "entire" basement to create an "urban entertainment center." There are also plans for an ESPN Sports Bar and Cafe under the Disney group's bid (Jonathan Auerbach, N.Y. POST, 2/17).
