JPMorgan Chase : New York


Recommended Posts

Je suis tombé sur ce projet controversé à New York, la banque JPMorgan Chase est entrain de démolir son siège social de 52 étages (215 m) pour la remplacer par une tour plus grande.

Largest Demolition In NYC’s History Gaining Steam At JPMorgan Chase’s 270 Park Avenue, In Midtown East


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.

New photos from above and at street level show the current state of what will be the tallest intentionally demolished structure in history.

Most of 270 Park Avenue should be demolished in 2020 and construction on its replacement is expected to begin in early 2021. The future 1,322-foot-tall development will yield a total of 2,439,635 square feet, with 1,871,767 designated for office space. Foster’s design will feature a steel-based structure and will include two sub-cellar levels, a cellar, and seven enclosed parking spaces.

Merci pour cet article très intéressant !

Quel serait alors le plus grand édifice à avoir été démoli à Montréal ? 

L'Hôtel Laurentien je crois bien. 

Il y a eu aussi l'Hôtel de la Montagne ; Le Children's Hospital ; le Architects' Building ... 

D'autres idées d'édifices démolis ?
