New building will be 20 storeys taller
Foster & Partners has won a competition to design a new headquarters building in New York for US investment bank JP Morgan Chase.
The 70-storey tower will replace a 52-storey Miesian-influenced tower designed by SOM in the 1960s just a few blocks from Mies’ Seagram Building on Park Avenue.
The news triggered an outcry from conservationists who argue the building should be preserved.
