The McCoy Center is an office building located in Columbus, Ohio. The building is named after longtime Bank One president John G. McCoy.[1] The bank was acquired by JPMorgan Chase & Co. after a merger with Bank One Corporation in 2004. Inside is a gift shop, Starbucks, dry cleaners, shipping center, car rental, nurse's station, two cafeterias, a bistro, five Chase automated teller machines, and a personal banker.[1] The building is located off of Polaris Parkway, home of the Polaris Fashion Place mall.

The facility—¼ mile from end to end—houses approximately 10,000 employees in a space equal in square footage to the Empire State Building. At 2 million-square-feet, it is the largest JPMorgan Chase & Co. facility in the world, the largest office building in the Columbus, Ohio area, and one of the largest in the United States behind the The Pentagon,[1] from which the McCoy Center has borrowed its way-finding system. Only a handful of office buildings in the U.S. - the 5.7 million-square-foot Warren G. Magnuson Health Services Building in Seattle and the 4.4 million-square-foot McDermott Building in San Antonio among them - are bigger.[2]
