Midtown E. | JPMorgan Chase World HQ (270 Park Avenue) | 434m | 1425ft | 57 fl | Demo

this is the first redevelopment project slated for midtown east following the neighborhood's rezoning to create a more modern stock of office space.

Out With the Old Building, in With the New for JPMorgan Chase

Quote:
JPMorgan Chase announced on Wednesday that it will demolish its headquarters on Park Avenue between 47th and 48th Streets and build a new 70-story world headquarters on the site for its 15,000 employees.
The building would be the first skyscraper to go up under new zoning rules for the area surrounding Grand Central Terminal, which were designed to encourage the development of taller, more modern skyscrapers and ensure that Midtown remains one of the city’s premier business districts.
The new tower will soar as much as 500 feet higher than the existing 52-story headquarters on the west side of Park Avenue and contain an additional one million square feet of office space.
Chase is expected to buy unused development rights from nearby buildings, generating more than $40 million for public improvements to the streets, pedestrian plazas and sidewalks in the neighborhood under the new zoning plan.
[...]
New 70-story JPMorgan Chase tower will be the first project under Midtown East rezoning



____________

Designed by SOM and Completed in 1960 for the Union Carbide Corporation, this 707ft, 52 story building could become the largest skyscraper voluntarily demolished if JP Morgan Chase chooses to go that route.

As an Architect in training and enthusiast, this is one of the saddest story's i've read.

bumped up to 1400ft. They can go 1566ft as of right, but they are pursuing a 1400' design.

JPMorgan Chase Plans Enclosed Public Plaza and Metro-North Access for 1,400-Foot Headquarter Building





as of right, Chase could build up to a whopping 477m/1566ft. They're pining for a 1400ft tower to create more desirable floor sizes. If anything, I wish I didn't know about the as of right version lol. It almost spoils what we will be getting...
