60 Wall Street
60 Wall Street is a 55-story skyscraper (745 feet, 227 meters) in Lower Manhattan, which currently serves as the American headquarters of Deutsche Bank.

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. 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 with all floors being occupied by Deutsche Bank. 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 130 Liberty Street Deutsche Bank building in the terrorist attack, Deutsche Bank moved more than 4,500 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 sell and lease back 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.
