The building will undergo a multimillion dollar capital improvement program to turn it into a ritzier destination for office tenants.
The building will add to Savanna’s extensive portfolio that includes over 17,300,000 million square feet in the New York City area. 100 Wall Street is one of many of its Financial District buildings and sits among as 2 Rector Street, 100 John Street, and 80 Broad Street.
