The new scheme will replace the existing Manhattan premises of the US investment bank and is expected to total 2.5 million square feet. The headquarters will house around 15,000 employees across 70 levels, replacing the original 52-story scheme designed by Skidmore Owings and Merrill in the 1960s.
We are delighted to have been selected by JP Morgan Chase to design their new headquarters on Park Avenue. The building design is set to respond to its historic location as well as the heritage of JP Morgan, and we look forward to working with them to realize their vision for a new global headquarters for the company. -Norman Foster, Founder and Executive Chairman, Foster + Partners
