NYC Class-A Office Tower Renovations in The Works
Building owner Paramount Group plans to redevelop 60 Wall Street, a class-A office tower in NYC’s Financial District, the company recently announced. A 1.6 million-ft2, 47-story tower, 60 Wall Street was designed in 1989 by Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo & Associates. The building’s vertical-transportation system, for which modernization bids are being sought, comprises 26 passenger elevators, three freight elevators and 14 escalators. Plans call for a transformed lobby and public atrium featuring greenery and abundant light. The building will offer floorplates ranging from 31,000 to 61,000 ft2, above-standard ceiling heights and outdoor space. Tenants will enjoy “sweeping views” of Manhattan, 24/7 access and security, modern building systems and eight corner offices per floor. The renovation, being designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF), will feature a public atrium and a new portico and façade.
