Paramount plans $250 million renovation at Manhattan office tower

Paramount Group says it is planning for an extensive repositioning of 60 Wall Street’s base and interiors.

Originally designed in 1989 by Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo & Associates, 60 Wall Street is today a LEED Gold, Class-A office tower. The 1.6 million sq. ft., 47-story office building has entrances to its two-story atrium on both Wall and Pine Streets, uniting the two thoroughfares with a pedestrian promenade.

With construction set to begin in summer of 2022, the postmodern building’s revitalization includes a transformative opening up of the facade, new triple height windows, the addition of a skylight to cast natural light into the atrium, and the installation of the largest indoor green wall in North America.

New amenities including a restaurant and cafe are also planned.. The planned investment will reimagine the building as a focal point for the local neighborhood and a dynamic hub of activity for the new Wall Street, while maintaining its preeminence as one of the newest and highest-quality office towers in New York City, the developers say in a statement.

Architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF), has redesigned the atrium to turn it into “an open, light-filled and verdant place of life and activity.”

Additional improvements to the office floors include enhanced ventilation systems with high-efficiency MERV 15 filtration and increased outside air per person with capabilities of providing 100% outside air to the spaces in ideal weather conditions.
