111 Progress in exterior renovations for Wall Street in the Financial District, Manhattan

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 a 1960s envelope with a modern glass curtain wall and an overhaul of the interiors, which will produce 1.5 million square feet of first-class office space, new infrastructure, an expanded lobby, and amenities designed by URBN Playground. Hunter Roberts Construction Group is the general contractor and JLL leases the property, which is connected to Wall Street and Manhatta Park to the northeast, Front Street to the northwest, Governor Lane to the southwest, and South Street and FDR to the southeast.

The old facade has been removed almost entirely since our last update in November, with the orange grid covering the gaps between the floorboards. A staircase wrapped in black mesh and a column of white plastic sheets runs along the main southeast elevation, while the opposite northwest side has an attached crane and the end portions of the old cladding.

The facade of the new 111 Wall Street will consist of more transparent floor-to-ceiling glass framed by copper-colored bands and pillars, and black pillars. A renovated outdoor plaza will surround the ground floor, which will come with a 170-foot facade facing Wall Street and a custom reception. The building will also feature storage for up to 170 bicycles and 20 electric scooters with charging stations and 80 lockers, and a barista that can be converted into a cocktail bar for evenings and special events.

Floor slab sizes will range 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-high smart glass windows. Floors 2 through 12 are grouped together as the podium floors, while floors 14 through 24 will be known as the tower floors. Panel heights range from 12 to 15.5 feet.
