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.

Retirement, Anniversary or Going Out of Business Sale? Let Wilkerson Handle the Details

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
