Revamped Art Deco tower in New York will feature vast wellness centre and residences

by Andrew Manns | 11 Apr 2019

One Wall Street, a 56-storey Art Deco skyscraper in Manhattan, New York, is undergoing an extensive refurbishment and will soon be home to a series of luxury condos as well as a 74,000 sq ft (6,900 sq m) Life Time Fitness-branded wellness centre.

The limestone building, which was designed by prolific 20th-century architect Ralph Walker and acquired by Macklowe Properties in 2014, will comprise 566 studio- to four-bedroom apartments, in addition to a penthouse.

The building's four-floor Life Time Athletic Lifestyle Resort – the company's second Manhattan venue – will offer a full-service spa, beauty salon, gym, and café.

Residents will also have access to a 75-foot swimming pool, indoor and outdoor lounges and a golf simulator.

The development will include a 44,000 sq ft Whole Foods Market.

New York-based office SLCE Architects are overseeing One Wall Street's makeover, which will also see the structure's Hildreth Meière-designed tile mosaic restored to its former glory.

Richard Dubrow, marketing director at Macklowe, told CLAD: "This is a grand Art Deco masterpiece that has the beauty of a museum with wide halls and a high ceiling.

"The building embraces both its history and innovation to create an intimate modern space for young professionals to live in and enjoy."

One Wall Street is anticipated to be completed in 2020; prices for apartments will start at US$960,000 (€851,241, £733,564).
