Sirius XM Heading Downtown?

Is SIRIUS XM RADIO looking to leave its longtime home at 1221 Avenue of the Americas in MANHATTAN? THE NEW YORK OBSERVER says yes -- writing, "the mystery midtown media tenant that wants to fill SL GREEN's 100 Church Street has been revealed as SIRIUS XM RADIO. A snazzy media tenant like SIRIUS would, however, lend some much-needed pizzazz to the building once famed for its collection of octopean chandeliers. Ever since the city's largest commercial landlord took over, it's been the victim of a renovation that's done little to appease its critics."
The move isn't official, but insiders note that CEO MEL KARMAZIN would welcome the savings that a move from midtown to downtown would bring.
