STAMFORD, Conn. - Officials call Connecticut the sports-media headquarters of the world, with the 19-building complex that is ESPN in Bristol and offices for World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. and the Yankees' YES Network here. Now they can add NBC Sports. Lured by generous tax credits and modern TV studios, the Comcast Corp.-owned NBC Sports is bailing on 30 Rockefeller Plaza in midtown Manhattan - the most prestigious address in the TV business - after rehabbing and reconfiguring a Clairol hair-products factory for $100 million.

Never mind the blow that GlaxoSmithKline P.L.C.'s decision to leave Center City has dealt Philadelphia's already vacancy-battered commercial landlords. What about the effect on the pharmaceutical company's 1,300 employees, who will move by 2012's end from a bustling downtown location to the Navy Yard? Talk about culture shock. Their new digs will be part of a tranquil, suburbanlike corporate campus along the Delaware River at the city's southern edge - the towers they now occupy on 16th Street, between Vine and Race Streets, but a speck, if that, on the distant skyline.

K. Hovnanian's Pennsylvania and South Jersey divisions will relocate their offices to Edison, N.J., as part of the parent company's restructuring of its operations in the Northeast and California. Six divisional offices will be consolidated into one regional office under the plan announced this week by Hovnanian Enterprises Inc., based in Red Bank, N.J. Combined with a similar restructuring in California, the move will mean the loss of about 110 jobs companywide. The cuts represent about 10 percent of the homebuilder's work force of 1,100 people.

Theology is shrinking its footprint at the intersection of City and Lancaster Avenues in Lower Merion. The Archdiocese of Philadelphia said Thursday that it would explore selling or leasing 45 acres of the St. Charles Borromeo Seminary campus in Lower Merion, consolidating in older buildings on 30 acres in the back of the property. The move follows Eastern University's relocation last year of its Palmer Theological Seminary from the southwest corner of that intersection to a rented space one-fifth the size in King of Prussia.

The official relocation of the Atlantic 10 Conference headquarters from Philadelphia to Newport News, Va., was announced yesterday. The relocation was first reported by the Daily News. "Moving the office to a new region of the Atlantic 10 footprint is an opportunity to further brand the A-10," commissioner Bernadette McGlade said. The A-10 office had been in Philadelphia since 1995.

NEW YORK - The busiest passenger train station in the United States is a 1960s-era, utilitarian labyrinth in the basement of a basketball arena. Pennsylvania Station, a gateway to the nation's biggest city, was designed to accommodate about 200,000 riders a day. Now, it is packed with more than 600,000. At rush hours, it resembles a human demolition derby. All it takes to strand hundreds of thousands of people is a glitch on one of only two tracks linking Manhattan to New Jersey under the Hudson River.

Dozens of businesses on the site of the proposed Center City convention center still face an uncertain future, despite Gov. Thornburgh's decision this week to release $1.9 million in state relocation funds. City Redevelopment Authority officials said yesterday that the money released by Thornburgh on Wednesday would be used to meet existing commitments to 21 businesses that have already moved or are in the process of moving. The $1.9 million was not sufficient to assist dozens of other businesses that have so far been unable to make relocation plans, officials said.

A Camden County judge blocked Cherry Hill Dodge's relocation to an old apple orchard on Route 70 yesterday, ruling that the township had no grounds for granting a special variance to the dealership. Residents in the neighborhood abutting the relocation site had opposed the move, saying that the dealership would alter the character of the Lakeview development, where homes cost up to $175,000. The Lakeview Civic Association filed suit after the Township Council upheld a zoning board ruling Sept.

Once upon a time, most workers saw relocation as a step up as well as a step away. But times have changed. And as more workers have spouses who are also working, they are beginning to see relocating as more hassle than it's worth, according to a study released yesterday. In dual-income families, 42 percent said their standard of living fell because of a spouse's relocation, according to a worldwide survey of 101 organizations that was conducted by the University of Tennessee and Right Associates of Philadelphia, a consulting firm that specializes in career management and corporate restructuring.
