New York—Macklowe Properties has recently announced Whole Foods Market as the first retail tenant at the company’s One Wall Street location in Lower Manhattan. The retailer will occupy 44,000 square feet of space across three floors; two floors for shopping and one for back-of-house operations. The store is scheduled to open in late 2018.

“Whole Foods Market will be a game-changing anchor for One Wall Street and contribute greatly to the retail renaissance taking place in the new Downtown,” Peter Whitenack, managing director of RKF, the leasing agent for One Wall Street, said in a statement. “We are now seeing the results of more than a decade of rebuilding, reinvesting and reimagining, and fully expect that Whole Foods Market will attract more high caliber brands seeking to establish a presence Downtown and the Broadway corridor, in particular.”

Peter Whitenack, Robert Futterman, Jaclyn Totolo and Scott Zinovoy represented Macklowe in the deal and are currently marketing the remaining available retail space at One Wall Street.

One Wall Street is a 50-story skyscraper completed in 1931 in the city’s Financial District, which served as the global headquarters of The Bank of New York Mellon Corp. until 2015. The tower was acquired by Macklowe Properties back in 2014 for a whopping $585 million. The new owner is currently working on a redevelopment effort to convert the building into condominiums, rentals apartments and a 155,000-square-foor retail component designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects.
