Work is progressing on the $100 million renovation of 111 Wall Street, a 25-story commercial building in the Financial District. Designed by STUDIOS Architecture and developed by Wafra Capital Partners and The Nightingale Group, the project involves replacing the structure’s 1960s shell with a modern glass curtain wall and a complete redesign of the interiors, resulting in 1, 5 million square feet of Class A office space, new infrastructure, an expanded lobby and amenities designed by URBN Playground. Hunter Roberts Construction Group is the general contractor and JLL is handling the leasing of the property, which is linked by Wall Street and Mannahatta Park to the northeast, Front Street to the northwest, Gouverneur Lane to the southwest, and South Street and FDR Drive to the southeast.
The old faceplate has been almost completely removed since our last update in November, with orange netting covering the gaps between the floor plates. A stairwell wrapped in black netting and a column of white plastic sheeting stretch the height of the southeast main elevation, while the opposite northwest profile has an attached hoist and the final segments of the old coating.
Photographs from late April show the last sections of the curtain wall on the east elevation.
The new facade of 111 Wall Street will consist of more transparent floor-to-ceiling glass framed by copper-colored bands and columns and black mullions. A renovated outdoor plaza will surround the ground floor, which will include 170 feet of frontage facing Wall Street and a dedicated reception desk. The building will also include storage space for up to 170 bicycles and 20 electric scooters with charging stations and 80 lockers, as well as a barista bar that can be transformed into a cocktail bar for parties and special events.
The size of the floor plates will vary from 36,476 square feet on the second level to 49,321 leasable square feet on the 23rd floor. All office spaces will be flexible in design, surrounded by nine-foot-tall smart glass windows. Floors 2 through 12 are collectively referred to as Podium Floors, while Floors 14 through 24 will be referred to as Tower Floors. Slab heights vary from 12 to 15.5 feet high.
The amenities will be housed in the cellar and will include the building’s own food and retail service called The Parlor, which will feature a curated mix of food and drink vendors. Tenants will have access to advanced ordering through the 111 Wall app.
The cellar will also house the adjacent Forum, a 152-seat conference center divided into two conference rooms with 76 seats per room, a meeting room with 20 seats and eight additional additional seats, and two adjoining rooms with conference-style seating. collectively totaling 100 places.
A fitness center will be available free of charge to office tenants and will include full-service locker rooms with showers, Peloton bikes and a rotating group class program showcasing fitness trends such as HIIT, boxing, training, TRX, free weights, etc.
Below is a diagram that shows the floor plates and their individual square footage. The 13th floor is a mechanical level in the middle of the building.
YIMBY last reported that the concourse will be completed by May 2022, full facade removal is scheduled for July, installation of fully modernized elevators by November and cladding completion is scheduled by December. The East River ferry service is directly across from 111 Wall Street at Pier 11, while nearby subways to the north include the 2, 3, 4, 5, and J trains.
Renovations and upgrades to 111 Wall Street are scheduled to be completed next January, as noted in the 111 Wall Street brochure.
