The careful re-purposing of this iconic landmark building preserves its original character while creating 566 new homes. Inspired by the Art Deco style of its inception in 1931, the residential tower features a bespoke lobby with a custom Italian marble mosaic floor inspired by the Greco-Roman wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Art Deco skyscraper, One Wall Street, a preeminent residential property in Financial District, recently announced the completion of The One, an expansive 100,000 square feet of residential amenities. The 564-foot-tall development by Macklowe Properties houses 566 condominiums, and the neighborhood’s largest supermarket, Whole Foods, and a 75,000-square-foot Life Time Athletic Resort in the base of the building. In addition, French retailer Printemps plans to open its first U.S. store in a 54,000-square-foot space, including the historic Red Room.
Macklowe Properties, in partnership with the New York Landmarks Preservation Foundation, unveiled a historic plaque at One Wall Street on Sept. 27, celebrating the building’s noteworthy architectural heritage. Tom Krizmanic, foundation chair, commended the meticulous restoration of the facade and the creation of interiors that resonate with the original design. Recognized as one of NYC’s premier Art Deco skyscrapers, and a significant work by Ralph Thomas Walker, the 1931 building was designated a New York City landmark in 2001 and later added to the Wall Street Historic District in 2007.
CityRealty highlighted the unveiling of One Wall Street’s landmark plaque. The iconic Art Deco structure, originally an office building, stands as NYC’s grandest office-to-residential transformation. Sarah Carroll, chair of the Landmarks Preservation Commission, extolled its emblematic value. Now open for occupancy, prices start from $1.15M for studios, going up to $9.75M for three-bedrooms. Architect Ralph Walker’s legendary exterior has been diligently restored, juxtaposing the building’s rich history with the modern luxury in its interiors.
