NYT Co. borrows against its building

From the NYT:

The New York Times Company plans to borrow up to $225 million against its mid-Manhattan headquarters building, to ease a potential cash flow squeeze as the company grapples with tighter credit and shrinking profits.

The company has retained Cushman & Wakefield, the real estate firm, to act as its agent to secure financing, either in the form of a mortgage or a sale-leaseback arrangement, said James M. Follo, the Times Company’s chief financial officer.

I would note that in a previous, more innocent time, you would think the NYT would be amongst the most rock-solid and blue-chip of newspaper companies.
