"At JPMorgan Chase, we believe that investing for the long-term is a hallmark of our success,” said Jamie Dimon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the company. “With a new headquarters at 270 Park Avenue, we are recommitting ourselves to New York City while also ensuring that we operate in a highly efficient and world-class environment for the 21st century."

“This is our plan for East Midtown in action. Good jobs, modern buildings and concrete improvements that will make East Midtown stronger for the hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers who work here," said Mayor Bill de Blasio. "We look forward to working with JPMorgan Chase as it doubles-down on New York as its international home."

The work is expected to take five years to complete, creating over 8,000 temporary jobs in the process.
