Work is nearing completion on One Wall Street, the largest office-to-residential conversion project in New York City’s history. Developed by Macklowe Properties, the 21st century overhaul is expected to cost around $1.5 billion, transforming the 90-year-old, 564-foot-tall Art Deco skyscraper with a multi-story addition designed by SLCE Architects as well as a 44,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market and a Life Time fitness center on the lower levels. The Financial District property will yield 566 new units with sales handled and marketed by Compass.
Since our last update in May, façade installation has concluded on the new annex and work has wrapped up on the stepped, glass-clad addition at the southwest corner. Construction elevators remains attached to the main tower and annex as interior work continues, but both should be dismantled in the next few months.
The following photos give a better look at the newly constructed section of the building and its floor-to-ceiling windows and precast stone panels, which were designed to match the styling of the original structure.
It also looks like all the windows have now been replaced with modern, energy-efficient glass.
One Wall Street’s residences and the Whole Foods Market are both expected to open sometime later this year.
