One Wall Street’s Monumental Office-to-Luxury Condominium Conversion Is Complete 

One Wall Street has officially completed its massive transformation from a 56-story office tower to a massive luxury condominium with a myriad of floor plans for residents to choose from. Conversion of the Lower Manhattan art-deco building was led by developer Harry Macklowe and offers an astounding one million square feet of residential space, with another 100,000 square feet of amenities. The completion was commemorated with a full unveiling, along with immediate move-ins and closings for residents.

“In the heart of the iconic financial district, One Wall Street, one of New York City’s most significant buildings, both in history and sheer size, has set the standard for residential conversions, marking yet another historic success,” stated Harry Macklowe, developer of One Wall Street. “The goal was to incarnate empty spaces into thoughtfully redesigned residences that will stand the test of time and continue to answer future demands of modern living. We are proud to fully unveil the completed building, now available for immediate move-ins, for the first time,” he added.

One Wall Street has also announced the launch of its Harbor Collection, which includes a new model residence designed by Harry Macklowe and frenchCALIFORNIA’s Guillaume Coutheillas. Residence 3404 features three bedrooms, curated finishes, custom furniture pieces from Mexico City-based studio Atra, and stunning views of Lower Manhattan. Asking prices for available residences go from $1.13 million to $12.750 million, excluding the penthouse residence.

Miami’s North Bay Village Welcomes Japanese-Inspired Waterfront Condominiums

For the first time in a decade, a new condominium is on the rise in Miami’s North Bay Village. Developers Pacific & Orient Properties, LLC celebrated the official groundbreaking of their project 7918 West Drive, a 21-story, 54-residence elegant waterfront condominium development that “showcases the simplicity of Japanese living,” states the press release. 

No two residences will feature the exact same layout at 7918 West Drive; however, all will feature indoor/outdoor living spaces that allow for sunrise and sunset views. Each floor will give way to just four homes, all corner residences with balconies, that span between 1,677 and 7,086 square feet with a minimum of two bedrooms. A 3,661-square-foot penthouse will feature six bedrooms, six bathrooms, one half-bathroom, and a 1,232-square-foot balcony. Prices begin at $1.8 million.

7918 West Drive’s more than 15,000 square feet of amenity space will include a pool, a fitness center, an elevated garden, a club room with a chef’s kitchen, and a pedestrian path along Biscayne Bay. The estimated completion date is in the first half of 2025.

Closings Commence at Brooklyn’s Olympia Dumbo

Closings are underway, and residents are moving in at Olympia Dumbo, the Hill West Architects-designed waterfront tower that is the neighborhood’s tallest condominium building. Located at 30 Front Street in Brooklyn, the 33-story building offers 76 one- to five-bedroom residences with prices on current inventory ranging from $1.785M to $19.5M. In January, the crown jewel penthouse, spanning nearly 5,000 square feet, went into contract for its full $17.5 million asking price, positioning it to become Dumbo’s priciest sale on record. Its highlights include five bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, oversized windows that frame Manhattan views, and an expansive outdoor terrace.
