New York YIMBY posted a little story on ARExA’s 110 Wall Street project today:

“New York’s Financial District has seen a tremendous residential boom over the past few decades – its nighttime population doubled from 2000 to 2010 to 40,000 – as developers convert obsolete office towers in a declining business district into much-needed housing.
And now, we can add another 205 units to the list, with an application for an alteration permit filed to convert a bit more than half of 110 Wall Street, on the far eastern edge of the Financial District, into housing.”

“According to the permit application, of the tower’s 260,000 square feet of floorspace that counts towards zoning, 133,000 will turn residential, and 127,000 will remain commercial. The bottom floor would have two retail bays, with apartments and office space above.”

ARExA is partnering with Perkins Eastman (S9), who are serving as architect of record on the project.
