44 Wall Street is an architecturally significant, 24 story multi-tenant office building occupying the high profile northwest corner of Wall and William Streets in the heart of Downtown Manhattan’s Financial District (FiDi) neighborhood. The property contains approximately 345,000 rentable square feet including 8,200 square feet of street level retail. Its prominent location on Wall Street has enabled the property to maintain consistently high occupancy levels.
Designed by Towbridge & Livingstone architects and built in 1927 for The Bank of America, this landmark quality building offers a prestigious corporate environment. The building’s classic style complements the surrounding Wall Street 1920’s architecture. High ceiling heights and excellent window lines provide exceptional light and air, enhancing the appeal to tenants. The property enjoys direct access to several subway lines and is a short walk from the Downtown waterfront.
After purchasing the building in 2004, Swig Equities implemented a major capital improvement program, transforming 44 Wall Street into a luxury boutique office building offering first class tenant services, amenities and security. Renovations to the building include a redesigned and expanded 28 foot high building lobby designed by the architectural firm Moed de Armas & Shannon; the installation of a new two-story storefront entrance; new elevator cabs; new core bathrooms and common areas for multi-tenant floors; and the installation of state of the art security and fire/life safety systems.
Companies in the immediate area include money center banks, foriegn banks, the major stock exchanges, Wall Street law firms, securities/financial firms and insurance companies. The Property is one block from the New York Stock Exchange (the world’s largest equities marketplace); next door to 40 Wall Street, the 1.3 million square foot Trump building; across the street from 48 Wall Street, a fully renovated 324,000 square foot office building also owned and managed by Swig Equities.
