Rafael Viñoly-Designed 125 Greenwich Street Over Two-Thirds Complete

Downtown’s residential boom continues apace with the construction of 125 Greenwich Street, which has reached two-thirds of the way to its 912-foot-tall pinnacle on a corner overlooking the World Trade Center memorial. The tower will rise above most of its neighbors in the Financial District, but since it is right across from 1 World Trade Center, it will not make a sizable impact on the skyline. Architect Rafael Viñoly is also responsible for the Midtown supertall 432 Park Avenue.

The construction height has roughly doubled since YIMBY’s last update. At this pace, we can speculate that the tower will be topped out by February or March of next year, with the façade closing up soon after. The curtain wall façade is notable for its curved edges and the integration of bare concrete material along the northern and southern sides.

The 88-story structure will create 273 condominiums, averaging 1,300 square feet apiece, as well as two stories of retail. Interior design is by March & White, a British design firm. While views will initially include an expansive panorama of the Hudson River, the eventual construction of Five World Trade Center will likely curtail those vistas substantially.

Bizzi & Partners and Vector Group are jointly responsible for the development. Completion is expected by 2020.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: Friendly-colored with blue-sky by its facade. Prominent progress starts on new star.

    Yay! More silver reflective glass…

  3. Vinoly Architects is moving its headquarters just a stone’s throw away from 125 Greenwich, to the top floor of the newly renovated 375 Pearl Street, the old Verizon building. They should be able to see their completed building from the office.

  4. Someday, someone is going to have to redefine the word: Density, to distinguish between Building Density and Resident Density. Buildings like this have much of the former and little of the latter, though it’s not as bad as some buildings, about as tall, with less than 100 units. If you add to that that some of the wealthy residents own multiple homes and spend only a fraction of their time in this one, then the Resident Density declines even further. I have no problem with tall buildings per se, but we won’t solve NYC’s housing shortage this way.
