History

Built between 1987 and 1989 as the headquarters for J.P. Morgan & Co. (now absorbed into JPMorgan Chase), the tower has over 1.7 million square feet (160,000 m²) of office space, with all floors being occupied by Deutsche Bank. Completed in 1989, 60 Wall Street was the largest corporate building to be built in the Financial District.

The tower was designed by Kevin Roche, John Dinkeloo & Associates to fit its surroundings with a postmodern, Greek-revival, and neoclassical look to emphasize both height and size. WSP Cantor Seinuk is the Structural Engineer.

60 Wall Street was obtained by Deutsche Bank in 2001 for $600 million, with uncertain plans for the building. However, post 9/11, due to the loss of the Deutsche Bank Building (also known as 130 Liberty Street) in the terrorist attack, Deutsche Bank moved about 5,500 of its personnel into this building. There are two floors for representative meetings, 20 and 47. Deutsche Bank owned the building, until it was sold in a sale-and-leaseback agreement to a private party for over $1.2 billion.

Today 60 Wall Street is surrounded by slender pre-World War II towers, such as the American International Building and 20 Exchange Place, making a prominent impact on the Lower Manhattan skyline.

The lobby has an entrance, open weekdays only, to the Wall Street subway station (2 3 trains) on the IRT Broadway – Seventh Avenue Line.

60 Wall Street is also known as a former locus of Occupy Wall Street activity during the protest occupation of nearby Zuccotti Park. In an October 2011 article in Bloomberg BusinessWeek entitled "60 Wall: The Real Headquarters of OWS," reporter Mark Gimein noted that the atrium was scheduled to host activist events like "the “vision and goals” meeting, the facilitation training sessions, the communications meeting."

Deutsche Bank has installed a 122.4 kW solar photovoltaic (PV) system on the roof of its American headquarters at 60 Wall Street, New York. The system is the largest solar PV array in Manhattan and at 737 feet above the ground it is currently the highest elevated solar PV flat panel array in the world. It will reduce the Bank's electricity consumption from the grid and will decrease carbon emissions by 100 metric tons per year. Installation was completed in January 2012.
