Last week, YIMBY reported on construction accelerating at 125 Greenwich Street, located kitty-corner from the World Trade Center site, in the heart of the Financial District. Today, we have another set of fresh renderings for the imminently 912-foot-tall tower, thanks to Bizzi & Partners, one of its developers. While it won’t stand anywhere near heights that were initially expected, it will still make quite an impact on the Downtown skyline.
Of the new towers that have risen in the Financial District and Tribeca over the past few years, the design for 125 Greenwich Street, by Rafael Viñoly, most resembles 50 West Street, which is a few blocks to the southwest. That building was designed by Helmut Jahn back before the 2008 recession.
With rounded glass corners for the entirety of its rise, 125 Greenwich bears a very strong similarity. However, two ribbons of concrete will crown Vinoly’s tower, while also running along its northern and southern sides.
Construction is already speeding along, and the building will eventually rise 72 floors to its rooftop, with 273 condominiums within averaging 1,300 square feet apiece, as well as two floors of retail space.
Bizzi & Partners is developing alongside Vector Group, and completion is anticipated by the end of 2020.
