Eleven Times Square is a 40-story, 1,100,000-square-foot (102,193 m2) LEED Gold-certified office and retail tower located on Eighth Avenue at W. 42nd Street in the Times Square neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City, directly across from the Port Authority Bus Terminal and immediately north of The New York Times Building. The tower was completed in 2011 and rises 601 feet (183 m), making it the 100th tallest building in New York City. It was developed by New York City-based SJP Properties in partnership with Prudential Real Estate Investors,[4] and was designed by the renowned architect Dan Kaplan of FXFOWLE.

Tenants include Microsoft Corp.,[5] global law firm Proskauer Rose,[6] global hedge fund Moore Capital Management,[7] British Telecom,[8] E*TRADE,[9], Kepos Capital and eMarketer. The tower’s 55,000 square feet (5,110 m2)[10] of retail space is leased to Parques Reunidos, who will operate a Lionsgate Entertainment Palace in 2019.

In February 2015, Norges Bank Investment Management purchased a 45-percent stake in 11 Times Square.[11] SJP Properties and Prudential Real Estate Investors continue to own and control the building, and SJP Properties continues to manage, lease and operate the building.[12]

11 Times Square features concierge-level services including a high-tech elevator dispatch system; an advanced visitor check-in system; a secured, fully efficient loading dock; and a messenger/mail center and delivery area specifically designed to maximize ease of use by tenants.[citation needed] The building also provides LEED Platinum-level indoor air quality and features highly efficient office space with floor-to-ceiling windows and column-free corner offices, as well as multiple private terraces.[citation needed] 11 Times Square's lobby features a kinetic mobile installation designed by artist Tim Prentice.[13]

The building is in close proximity to several modes of public transportation. It is across from the Port Authority Bus Terminal. In addition, it has direct access to the New York City Subway, with an entrance to the Times Square - 42nd Street subway station (1, ​2, ​3​, 7, <7>​​, ​A​, ​C​, ​E​, N, ​Q, ​R, ​W​, and S trains) located inside the building façade.
