Staffers for Vogue.com and Style.com are getting cozy. WWD reports that the teams will share the 29th floor at Condé Nast’s new headquarters, One World Trade Center. We know. This is a bit much. It’s a story only a media reporter could love. Okay, maybe “love” is too strong. This is a story a media reporter could give a hearty handshake.
Initially, the plan was for Vogue’s staff — both digital and print — to occupy the 25th floor. This would’ve been a change for Vogue, which had kept digital and print staff separate at 4 Times Square. But in a dramatic change of events, Vogue.com and Style.com staffers recently learned they would both be taking over the 29th floor.
The change makes sense. In November we learned that Style.com’s brass would be reporting to Vogue’s brass. Style.com’s publisher Matt Rice now reports to Vogue’s publisher Susan Plagemann, and Style.com’s editor Dirk Standen now reports to Vogue’s editor Anna Wintour. Might as well combine the two websites’ teams too.
