AOL today said that it will be relocating its headquarters from Dulles, VA, to New York City. The company’s home will not be in the Time Warner building neighboring Central Park; instead the company leased office space further south at 770 Broadway. As part of the move, AOL will be combining its advertising platforms into a new business division called “Platform A”, which will include Advertising.com, Tacoda, Third Screen Media, Lightningcast and ADTECH.
AOL also announced it has signed an agreement with HP to offer co-branded, localized versions of its portal, toolbar and search engine on the computer provider’s desktops and notebook PCs.
AOL’s history dates back to 1989 when the name first surfaced as a Mac BBS. The onlien service AOL was available for the Windows operating system first in January 1993. AOL was headquartered in Dulles, VA, since 1996.
