The Wall Street Hotel

New York, NY

Architecture, Adaptive Reuse

Stonehill Taylor spearhead the conversion of two historic buildings, originally built in 1902 and 1905 in Manhattan’s Financial District, into the newly opened The Wall Street Hotel. Located between Pearl and Water Streets, the newly combined hotel property stretches an entire block and features 171 rooms and suites, as well as 10 hospitality suites, and 4,800 square feet of event spaces including a lobby lounge and restaurant. A three-story rooftop addition with vertical siding and a metal exterior, includes a bar, a ballroom with 15-ft high ceilings, and a wrap-around terrace.

Most recently used as offices with ground floor retail, Stonehill Taylor sought to restore the glamour of old New York to the property. A new steel and glass marquee makes a striking street presence and a grand entry experience. The façade work of the first two stories entailed restoring the original buildings’ handsome historic character while also removing interventions that happened over the years or incohesive elements between the two buildings. Stonehill Taylor eliminated the different stones on the first-story façades of the two buildings and rendered them uniform, further strengthening the street presence. The architecture team also designed the building plan to accommodate the severe differences in elevation of the two historic buildings, creating seamless transitions between two distinct level.
