The Cuozz reports that Viacom has renewed its lease at 1515 Broadway, putting an end to the media conglomerate's flirtation with taking over the former New York Times Building around the corner, which is undergoing a makeover and rebranding as the Times Square Building. Bad news for Times Building owner Africa-Israel, which bought the landmark for $525 million and is sinking another $175 million into the renovation. SL Green's 1515 Broadway is getting its own makeover as well. [NYP; previously]
