Crédit Agricole CIB Building (also known as the Crédit Lyonnais Building or earlier known as the J.C. Penney Building) is a 609 ft (186m) tall skyscraper in Manhattan, New York City. It is located at 1301 Avenue of the Americas between West 52nd and West 53rd Streets.


The building was developed by Uris Buildings Corporation[1] and was completed in 1964 and has 45 floors. Shreve, Lamb & Harmon Associates designed the building, which is the 87th tallest in New York City.

It is named for the Calyon Corporation which resulted from the merger of Crédit Agricole Indosuez and the corporate and investment banking division of the Crédit Lyonnais corporation as a result of the takeover of the latest by Crédit Agricole S.A. in 2002. Calyon was since renamed Credit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank in 2010. It used to serve as the headquarters of PricewaterhouseCoopers before they moved to 300 Madison Avenue. It is now Credit Agricole CIB's US headquarters.


The building's other tenants include public accounting firm CohnReznick, the law firm Norton Rose Fulbright, the law firm Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, and Barclays.

At one time RJR Nabisco had its headquarters in the building.[2] After RJR Nabisco was separated, Nabisco Group Holdings Corp. had its headquarters in Calyon.[3]
