Stock brokers need kale too. At least Harry Macklowe seems to think so.
Whole Foods is in talks with the developer to potentially set up shop at his One Wall Street, the former Bank of New York building in the Financial District, the New York Post reported, citing sources familiar with the talks.
If done, the deal would mark another milestone in the Financial District’s development into a residential, family-oriented area, at least in part.
Macklowe is in the midst of converting the 50-story Art Deco building at One Wall Street into residential, developing 524 units, half of which will be condominiums, and half rental apartments. The conversion is projected to cost $1.5 billion. The new building will also include 95,000 feet of commercial space, most of which will be devoted to retail.
The developer bought the property in 2014, paying $585 million. [NYP] – Ariel Stulberg
