Publisher Conde Nast, which produces a fleet of magazines including Vanity Fair and The New Yorker, could possibly anchor the building formerly known as the Freedom Tower at the World Trade Center site.

When completed three years from now, the skyscraper will be New York’s tallest at 1,776 feet. Should the Conde Nast deal come to pass, the company will likely move from its 800,000 square feet at 4 Times Square in 2014.

The skyscraper is slated to reach 55 stories high by the end of this year. It is then expected to reach rooftop level by the fourth quarter 2011. The total budget is an estimated $3.1 billion.
