JPMorgan Chase Unveils Sustainable Design for NYC Building

JPMorgan Chase unveiled the design for its new state-of-the-art global headquarters which will be New York City’s largest all-electric tower with net zero operational emissions and improved indoor air quality. 

The 1,388-foot, 60-story skyscraper – designed by Foster + Partners at 270 Park Avenue will define the modern workplace with 21st-century infrastructure, smart technology, and 2.5 million square feet of flexible and collaborative space. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2025.

The building will be 100% powered by renewable energy sourced from a New York State hydroelectric plant and will use state-of-the-art building technology and systems to ensure it operates as efficiently as possible, including:

  • Intelligent building technology that uses sensors, AI and machine learning systems to predict, respond, and adapt to energy needs.
  • Advanced water storage and reuse systems to reduce water usage by more than 40%.
  • Triple pane glazing on the façade and automatic solar shades connected to HVAC systems for greater energy efficiency.

The firm also recycled, reused, or upcycled 97% of the building materials from the demolition – far exceeding the 75% requirement of the leading green building standard.

“With our new headquarters, JPMorgan Chase is making a long-term investment in our business and New York City’s future while ensuring that we operate in a highly efficient and world-class environment for the 21st century,” said Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase, in a statement. “We are extremely excited about the building’s state-of-the-art technology, health and wellness amenities, and public spaces, among many other features. It is in the best location in one of the world’s greatest cities.”
