Signs of Progress at Walker Tower

Development News // Mar 20, 2012


As Curbed points out today, some signage has just gone up at Walker Tower, where CORE will be launching sales of the 53 luxury condominiums in this grand pre-war Art Deco building later this spring. The press has been following the project closely, but the new signs reveal an exciting facet of the project that hasn’t yet been mentioned. Beginning next week, the building will host Ralph Walker: Architect of the Century, the first exhibit exploring the life and career of the influential architect Ralph Walker, whom Frank Lloyd Wright called “the only other honest architect in America.” This exhibit on Walker, designer of the Barclay-Vesey Building, Irving Trust Building (aka One Wall Street) and of course Walker Tower, will be open to the public, by appointment only. It will feature large models of Walker’s masterpieces, along with archival drawings and plans, and interactive digital displays guiding visitors through Walker’s landmark career. For a taste of what to expect, and to make a reservation, visit the exhibit website.
