One Wall Street is in the midst of a huge $1.5 billion makeover as the 51-story Art Deco gem is converted from office use into 566 residential units, topped with a triplex that may fetch $40 million. At street level, significant activity can be seen, as parts of the facade have been removed to make way for the retail section in the building that will bring a Whole Foods to the Financial District.

On Wednesday, September 26th, a new, permanently affordable housing block will break ground in Brooklyn’s Brownsville neighborhood.

220 Central Park South is ever so close to becoming the third slender skyscraper to open up in the last few years along Billionaire’s Row.

For the next few months, construction workers will be toiling tirelessly to reach the seemingly possible year-end completion deadline.
