Skyscraper 1 Wall Street was erected in New York in 1931 by architect Ralph Thomas Walker. Located in the financial center of Lower Manhattan, it was designed for the offices of large companies.
The building’s transformation was led by real estate developer Harry Macklow of Macklowe Properties. The changes affected 92,900 sq. meters of residential and 23,200 sq. meters of commercial space.
“The aim of the project was to transform empty spaces into intelligently redesigned residential apartments that will stand the test of time and continue to meet the demands of modern living in the future,” explains Macklow.
To coincide with the completion of the project, one of the residences was shown, which was designed for the updated 1 Wall Street by designer Guillaume Couteyas from the FrenchCalifornia bureau.
The building renovation project also included the development of public spaces. For example, the skyscraper has a 23-meter swimming pool with a terrace, as well as a private restaurant and bar open to residents. The new life of the skyscraper is a response to the return of residential development to the center and the result of a drop in demand for offices, caused, among other things, by the pandemic.
