A new set of unofficial renderings by Siniaevart illustrate evening views of 270 Park Avenue in Midtown East. The JPMorgan Chase headquarters is expected to top out in excess of 1,400 feet above ground, introducing a dominating new form to the Manhattan skyline.
Designed by Foster + Partners with Adamson Associates, the skyscraper will replace the existing 707-foot Union Carbide tower. A majority of the structure should be dismantled by the end of 2020. When complete, 270 Park Avenue will stand as the third tallest building by roof height in Manhattan.
As previously reported by YIMBY, trading floors will occupy the lower levels of the building, with mechanical floors, landscaped terraces at setback levels, and amenity floors above. The setbacks continue up to the apex of the structure. In sum, the building is expected to yield around 2.5 million gross square feet.
A completion date for 270 Park Avenue has not been announced.
