Project: One Wall Street
Award: Residential, Gold, 2023
Location: New York, United States
Architect: MdeAS Architects
Client: Macklowe Properties
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.
Two extensions have been added to the building. At the northeast corner, where retail previously failed to engage the street, the revitalized storefront houses a multi-level Whole Foods grocery store, fitness centre, day-care and other services previously lacking in the neighbourhood. The upper floors of the addition offer loft-like apartments with street views. The second extension at the top of the building houses a rooftop restaurant, pool and fitness centre.
The lobby’s grand entrance from Broadway was recreated following Ralph Walker’s original plans from 1928 and features intricate metalwork and stained-glass motifs inspired by the neighbouring Trinity Church. Additional amenities include a children’s room, teen room and co-working suite, all located throughout the building to foster a sense of community.
