On January 18, IAC/InterActiveCorp celebrated the topping-off of its new Manhattan headquarters, designed by Frank Gehry. IAC/InterActiveCorp's CEO, Barry Diller, is a longtime supporter of the High Line project, and he expects that the new headquarters will play a central role in the future of the neighborhood. On January 11, Mr. Diller was quoted in the Wall Street Journal, saying that the High Line District, "is an embryonic neighborhood where we could be a participant... It'll be a wondrous environment to live, to work, to play." Located on a site between 18th and 19th Streets, on the West Side Highway, the IAC/InterActiveCorp headquarters has been designed by Mr. Gehry to evoke the sails of a ship, a reference to the nautical history of the area. The building is expected to open in March 2007.
