1211 Avenue of the Americas (also known as the News Corp. Building) is an International style skyscraper in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. Formerly called the Celanese Building, it was completed in 1973 as part of the Rockefeller Center extension, that started in the late 1950s with the Time-Life Building. The Celanese Corporation would later move to Dallas, Texas. 1211 is owned by an affiliate of Beacon Capital Partners, and leasing is managed by Cushman & Wakefield, Inc., of which the Rockefeller Group was once a major shareholder.
The building serves as the global headquarters for the American companies 21st Century Fox and News Corp, both controlled by American businessman Rupert Murdoch. The building is well known for housing the main studios of the Fox News Channel, part of 21st Century Fox's Fox Entertainment Group. News Corp divisions housed there include Dow Jones & Company, The Wall Street Journal, and the New York Post.
