Work to prepare 270 Park Avenue for its demolition is continuing in Midtown East. Since YIMBY’s last update in late July, more scaffolding and netting have been installed on the lower section of the Modernist-style skyscraper. JPMorgan Chase is the developer of the project to tear down the 1.5-million-square-foot, 52-story tower and replace it with a 57-story supertall designed by Foster + Partners Architects, with Adamson Associates as the architect of record.
Construction has begun on the structural frames for 425 Park Avenue‘s trio of decorative parapet fins in Midtown East. The 47-story, 897-foot-tall building is designed by Norman Foster, head of Foster + Partners, and is being developed by L&L Holding Company LLC. Adamson Associates is the architect of record.
The demolition of 270 Park Avenue is progressing in Midtown East, as new scaffolding and netting have been installed on the exterior of the Modernist-style skyscraper. These join the construction elevator and sidewalk scaffolding that were assembled several months ago on the 1.5-million-square-foot, 52-story tower. JPMorgan Chase is the developer and Foster + Partners Architects is the design firm for the upcoming 57-story supertall that will rise in its place. Adamson Associates is listed as the architect of record.
The first official DOB applications have been filed for JPMorgan’s new 57-story supertall office tower at 270 Park Avenue in Midtown East, Manhattan. YIMBY last reported on the 270 Park Avenue site when developer JPMorgan Chase filed a text amendment with City Planning for a tower designed by Foster + Partners Architects. Located between East 47th Street and East 48th Street, the lot is five blocks north of Grand Central Station, serviced by Metro North, as well as 4, 5, 6, 7, and S trains.
Construction on 425 Park Avenue in Midtown is charging ahead toward completion, with the upper floors now taking shape. The 47-story, 897-foot-tall building is designed by Norman Foster, head of Foster + Partners, and is being developed by L&L Holding Company LLC. Adamson Associates is the architect of record. The final major elements yet to be assembled are the three glass fins that will stand atop the flat roof parapet. This architectural detail will define the tower among the surrounding buildings, especially when illuminated at night.
