The new home of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Daily News and philly.com at 801 Market Street opened for business today.

Newsroom employees for the Inquirer and philly.com started unpacking this morning and will be followed later this week by their colleagues from the Daily News.

Operations of the three news organizations are being consolidated on the third floor at the former Strawbridge and Clothier Department Store Building.

The move was necessitated by the sale of their previous home, the iconic white tower at 400 N. Broad Street, to developer Bart Blatstein by the news organizations' previous owners, Philadelphia Media Network.

The Inquirer had called 400 N. Broad Street its home for 87 years and 801 Market Street will be the newspaper's ninth location since its founding in 1829. It's the fifth home for the Daily News, which first hit the streets in 1925.
