NEW YORK POST 24 March 2022 Inside One Wall St: NYC’s Largest Ever Office-to-Condo Conversion
Once one of the city’s tallest towers, the Irving Trust Building spent the last eight years undergoing a massive transformation into One Wall Street, and now the skyscraper from Harry Macklowe is getting ready to open its doors to its first residents. Macklowe expanded Ralph Walker’s 1929 art-deco design with the approval of the Landmarks Preservation Commission, resulting in a thoroughly modern tower that looks and feels like a Manhattan classic. Between moving the building’s mechanics from the perimeter to its center and building a 30-story extension, the project ended up being the largest office-to-condo conversion in New York City history, with completion expected later this year.
THE REAL DEAL 22 March 2022 See Harry Macklowe’s handwritten plan for One Wall Street
From a simple two-page scrawl bloomed the largest condo conversion project in New York City history. Developer Harry Macklowe created One Wall Street with a pen and two pieces of scrap paper. Now, the art-deco tower that once housed the Irving Trust will soon open its doors to residents of its new collection of Financial District condominiums and its suite of top-of-the-line recreational and productivity-centered amenities. Macklowe’s original vision guided every aspect of the development process, from large-scale elements like preserving the iconic facade and structural concerns relating to placement of elevator shafts to minute details, including heated window sills.

Wherever you look in Manhattan, you’ll see Harry Macklowe’s fingerprints. From the iconic glass-cube Apple Store to the skinny beauty of 432 Park, Macklowe’s vision manifests up and down the island. Now, deep in the heart of the Financial District, Macklowe has made his biggest impression yet: the towering, record-breaking office-to-residential conversion at One Wall Street, which will bring 566 luxury homes to the rapidly changing neighborhood. Decked out in a historically accurate limestone facade and replete with high-end amenities (including a Whole Foods market at street level), One Wall Street is poised to push Financial District from a world of offices to a place where people live and work.

The Financial Times’ architecture and design critic, Edwin Heathcote crossed the pond to meet Harry Macklowe and witness the ongoing transformation of One Wall Street. “I deposited my first paycheck here, at the Irving Trust Bank (the original owner of the building),” said Macklowe, who has spent the last decade converting the landmark Art Deco office tower into a monument at the center of the new residential incarnation of the world’s financial center. The resulting tower still bears its original Gilded Age grandeur and flourishes while holding a collection of luxury condos for sale, ranging in size from generous studios to a triplex penthouse that has yet to be released to the market.
