111 Wall St. Redevelopment Will Include View Smart Windows
Nightingale Properties and Wafra Capital Partners, the ownership team behind the repositioning of 111 Wall St. in the Financial District, will install View smart windows as part of a redevelopment program that includes a full exterior renovation and infrastructure overhaul.
The new smart windows will provide tenants with unobstructed views of the Manhattan and Brooklyn skylines while also reducing energy consumption at the property. In addition, the installation at 111 Wall St. will feature View Immersive Display, which allows tenants to transform their smart windows into transparent, high-definition displays.
“We are focused on creating a safe and secure office space that will put employees returning to work at ease,” said Michael Gontar, CIO with Wafra Capital Partners. “With its numerous health and wellness benefits, incorporating View Smart Windows into the reimagined 111 Wall Street was an obvious choice.”
