Rolex plans to demolish its U.S. headquarters at 665 Fifth Ave. in Midtown Manhattan.

In its place the company will construct a 25-story office building, The Real Deal reports.

Luca Bernasconi, CEO of Rolex Watch USA, has pledged that the new building will be environmentally friendly.

“The quality, precision and excellence that are associated with Rolex will be incorporated in all aspects of the building,” Bernasconi said.

No timeline for the projet has been released. The company is partnering with architect Chipperfield on the new building, which is expected to include a Rolex retail store on its ground level.

For now, the company continues to operate in its 12-story headquarters, which dates to the 1970s.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
