55 Wall Street

by Joseph Go Chua

Located in Manhattan’s Financial District, 55 Wall Street is a nine-story Greek Revival style building that was originally constructed from 1836 to 1842 to house the Merchants’ Exchange. It was designated a New York City Landmark in 1965 and was named a National Historic Landmark in 1978. Witkoff acquired 55 Wall Street in 2005 and redeveloped it into a Cipriani-branded condominium with 101 luxury residences, one of the largest event spaces in New York City, a private club, and a restaurant. Witkoff’s redevelopment achieved the highest relative value per square foot in the Financial District.
