JPMorgan Chase announces plans for New York City’s 1st all-electric skyscraper

MANHATTAN, New York (WABC) — A groundbreaking development is in the works that would bring New York City’s largest all-electric skyscraper.

JPMorgan Chase announced its new global headquarters, located on Park Avenue in Manhattan, will be fully powered by renewable energy.

The 60-story tower – 1,388 feet tall – will achieve “net-zero operational emissions” by using power that comes from a state hydro-electric plant, officials say.

Bill Ritter talks to Dr. Jay Varma about the Florida judge who overturned the CDC’s federal mask mandate for public transit. “This is a real challenge,” Varma said.

Other green features will include triple-glazed windows and systems that store and re-use water.

The tower is scheduled to be completed by 2025.
