Oct 6 Pfizer Inc, the largest U.S.
drugmaker, said it aims to sell its New York City world
headquarters buildings in midtown Manhattan by the end of 2017
and to move into more modern Manhattan facilities no sooner than
the first half of 2019.
"This move is being driven by the significant investment
that would be required to bring the (existing) buildings to
modern standards," Pfizer said on Thursday, adding it had
notified employees of the plans on Wednesday.
