NEW YORK | One Wall Street | 654 FT / 199 M | 50 FLOORS | 1932

Overlooked New York

1928 - 1932

- 52nd Tallest Building in the City.

(Description from Wikipedia)

One Wall Street (originally the Irving Trust Company Building, later the Bank of New York Building) was completed in 1931 and opened in 1932. The original architect was the firm of Voorhees, Gmelin & Walker. It is 50 stories and is 654 feet (199 m) tall. The building measures 1,165,659 rentable square feet. It is located in the Financial District of Manhattan and is on the corner of Wall Street and Broadway. It is known for its spectacular mosaic lobby[1]

In 1965, a 36-floor addition to the site was constructed to the south of the tower to provide extra office space.

The building has a steel skeleton, and is covered in limestone.[2] The building has had numerous problems with the limestone exterior and in 2001, the building's owners decided to bring in Hoffman Architects to conduct a survey of the exterior and provide a 5 year masterplan which consists of mortar repair and window replacements.
