LARGEST DEMOLITION MOVING ALONG IN NYC
The largest demolition in NYC is moving along at 270 Park Avenue. According to New York YIMBY, new scaffolding and netting have been installed on the exterior of the 52-story, 1.5-million-ft building. This will be the tallest intentionally demolished structure in history. An exterior mechanical hoist has also been placed on the northern corner of the tower, and two wrap-around walkways are mounted at different heights on the edge of the curtain wall. In place of the current tower, developer JPMorgan Chase plans to build a 1,322-ft-tall, 57-story supertall. The Foster+Partners-designed building will include 1,871,767 ft of office space. Demolition is expected to be mostly complete in 2020 and construction on the new tower is set to begin in early 2021.
