I suspect it has something to do with Condé Nast buying them around '98. Wired was getting a line to "legitimate" East-coast publishing world of Vogue and GQ, and Condé Nast was buying its way into tech culture which it had no gateway into. (And I think that's why they've held onto it. It's their Rolling Stone, of a sort.)
I also did a little work for Vivid, but it wasn't in that building, so I'm not sure when that would have been.
