One Wall Street
Green Spaces in Downtown Manhattan

The 4,000-square-foot outdoor terrace will be a central feature of The One Club at One Wall Street and will help redefine how we relate to nature in the city. With its landscaped spaces complete with couches, planted trees, and city and harbor views in every direction, residents will not only be able to relax and mingle al fresco but also be able to consider a garden in the sky a part of their home.

As spring erupts in the city — more welcome than ever this year — this mindset enriches life behind the doors of these Lower Manhattan condos for sale but continues well beyond it. This is a neighborhood where lush parks at the river’s edge help connect residents to the creative possibilities of these new urban green spaces. Curated plantings, thoughtfully designed as works of art, line the river, and Downtown’s identity as the edge of an island where expanses open to the south, east, and west is clearly felt in nearby parks.

Columbus Park, just moments from One Wall Street, was once known as Five Points Park — a testament to its deep connection to New York history. Here, where once the original gangs of New York helped shape the cultural and literal landscape, visitors can now find a beloved Chinatown space, where a morning out can be transformed by the meditative, dancelike movements of a group of tai chi practitioners. With a playground and a basketball court, it’s the ideal spot to meet neighbors with similar interests and maybe even start a weekly pickup game.

Another outdoor space that combines the beauty of nature with the heartbeat of the city is the Battery’s Bosque Gardens, a landscaped space at the southern tip of Manhattan that is part of the largest horticultural planting in North America without an admission fee. Constituting the second phase of a master plan by Dutch landscape architect Piet Oudolf to transform the Battery with carefully selected plants, the Bosque is the perfect place to connect with flowers, spend a spring day reading in the sun, or take a blissful break while exploring the riverside neighborhood.

Nearby, is the SeaGlass Carousel, lawns made for leisurely picnics, and the pavilion that was the depot for immigrants to the New World before the Statue of Liberty had arrived to greet them. You’ll find greenery unlike anything seen outside the city — something completely unique to Downtown. It’s very much like One Wall Street itself, where the richness of New York is a part of everything you do, inside or out.
