277 Park Avenue is an office building in the Midtown Manhattan neighborhood of New York City. It stands on the east side of Park Avenue between 47th and 48th Streets; it is 687 feet (209 m) tall, with 50 floors.
The building currently houses parts of JPMorgan Chase's Investment Bank, Commercial Bank, and other corporate functions. JP Morgan's takeover of Bear Stearns in 2008 resulted in most investment banking employees moving to 383 Madison Avenue to reduce the leased real estate footprint in Midtown.
Previous tenants have included Penthouse Magazine, Schlumberger, Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette, Continental Grain Company and Chemical Bank (Predecessor to today's JPMorgan Chase). The office building opened on July 13, 1964.
