Macklowe Properties is sticking with the classics, tapping architect Robert A.M. Stern for its residential conversion of One Wall Street in the Financial District.

A new rendering of the planned changes show that the building’s main tower, built in 1929, will largely remain intact, while its annex, added in 1961, will have its top section modified and expanded.

The new annex will narrow as it rises, adding large windows and setbacks, which will create a large amount of outdoor space, New York YIMBY reported.

Further details on the building’s ground-level retail spaces are unavailable, as permit applications for the conversion have not yet been filed.

Macklowe is seeking $100 million in EB-5 funding for the project, about 7 percent of the total cost, pegged at $1.5 billion.
