The Time-Life Building, located at 1271 Avenue of the Americas (6th Avenue) in Rockefeller Center in New York opened in 1959 and designed by the Rockefeller family's architect Wallace Harrison, of Harrison, Abramovitz, and Harris. It was the first expansion of Rockefeller Center west of the Avenue of the Americas. Air rights for the building were purchased from the Roxy Theatre to the west. The Roxy would be torn down in 1960 and an office building that is connected to Time-Life was built.
The Time-Life Building is a 404-foot-tall (123 m), 30-story skyscraper in Chicago, Illinois designed by Harry Weese and completed in 1969.

The odd-numbered floors are accessible from the lower lobby, with even floors serviced from the upper level. Currently managed by the Golub Group. It currently serves as the headquarters for the Chicago Park District.
