This 22-story, glass-clad office building at 95 Wall Street was designed in 1970 by Emery Roth & Sons and acquired by The Moinian Group in 2004 for $130 million for conversion to rental apartments.
The project is known as Dwell on Wall by Yoo, a design group headed by Philippe Starck, the French designer who did the unusual interiors at the Royalton Hotel on West 44th Street and 15 Broad Street.
The 500,000-square-foot building had been used for many years by JP Morgan.
Avinash K. Malholtra was the architect for the conversion, which added about 500 rental apartments. The building is also known as 96 Front Street and 97 Water Street.
