Yet Another Cool Old FiDi Building Going Condo?

New, 16 comments

Beloved Art Deco skyscraper 70 Pine Street is already headed for partial residential conversion, and we just found out that 1 Wall Street might not be far behind. Is every Financial District office building with a bit of history going condo? Maybe! Now Crain's is reporting that embattled developer Kent Swig is close to unloading 140 William Street, and the bet is on the empty seven-story building becoming the latest luxury convert.

The price is reportedly $11.5 million, which sounds cheap (and indeed, Swig was hoping to get over $14 million), but is actually a lot more on a per-square-foot level than other recent FiDi building trades. According to PropertyShark, 140 William Street was built in 1942, and last sold in 2007 for $23.9 million. We'll check back in after Philippe Starck sticks a concierge in the lobby and a bowling alley in the basement.
