Harry Macklowe's residential conversion of the Art Deco landmark at One Wall Street just got one step closer to becoming a reality: His firm, Macklowe Properties, filed permits with the city today to get that conversion going. According to the Real Deal, the permits call for a total of 944,000 square feet of space, with 848,000 square feet of that being allocated for its more than 500 residential units. There will be both condos and rentals, along with four full-floor penthouses, and the building will also have both traditional and bicycle parking.
This is the first time formalized plans for the building have been released, but the new blueprint differs pretty substantially from what had been reported previously. First: the total square footage is a huge jump from the 800,000 square feet the building was originally thought to have; it'll also be spread out over 650 floors, not 627. Macklowe had also estimated that the building would have approximately 350,000 square feet of retail space, and while there's still supposed to be retail space, that much seems unlikely at this point.
Perhaps the juiciest tidbit: The permit lists SLCE Architects (who worked on the condo conversion of the Woolworth Building) as the architect of record, but Robert A.M. Stern had most recently been attached to the project, even creating renderings for the conversion. The project isn't listed on either firm's site, but this could be a very interesting change for the project. The total cost of the project is expected to be around $1.5 billion.
