In the News: Deluxe Mancave on White Street

one wall red room••• As expected, grand old 1 Wall Street is being converted; it “will have approximately 350,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floors and close to 800,000 square feet of residential up top, split evenly between rentals and for-sale properties.” Maybe Tribeca Citizen should rent the Red Room (above) for an office…. Right: a fantastic conference room on the 49th floor. More pix here.Daily News

  1. The base of One Wall Street would make the perfect home for Nordstrom who is strongly rumored to be on the hunt for 250,000 sf of space for a FiDi store. There is no better location than this stunning landmark, smack in the middle of the Financial District and the resurgent Broadway corridor with easy access to mass transit and the entire area’s office inventory filled with potential customers. I would be SHOCKED if this doesn’t happen. :-)

  2. how much did man of the world pay for the old townsend place on white street?Anyone know?
