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.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
