125 Greenwich Street shot up with great speed in 2018, and is the 16th-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City. Now, it has only a few floors remaining before its 912-foot pinnacle is reached above the Financial District. The 88-story tower is being designed by Rafael Vinoly and developed by Bizzi & Partners and Vector Group, while the marketing of the 273 residential units is being handled by Douglas Elliman. Interiors are being designed by March & White.

It looks like the building has reached the amenity floors, and above that, the mechanical concrete walls that give the building its crown will soon rise. The reflective glass facade is now on the second and upper half of the tower, along with the central square windows on the centerline of the north and south elevations. Work on the building’s podium will progress even further once the tower tops out. It will be clad with a dark facade that contrasts against the glass curtain wall directly above.

Each unit averages around 1,300 square feet, and all come with round glass and column-free corners that overlook the World Trade Center, the Hudson River, and the skyscrapers of Lower Manhattan. Amenities for the building include a dining room, an entertainment room, a swimming pool, and a fitness center and spa.

All the amenities are located on the top three floors of the tower, which will give residents and guests a heightened experience within the building and its surroundings. The swimming pool is on the western wide of the tower, with views of the World Trade Center and the sunset, while the fitness center faces east towards Wall Street, Brooklyn and the sunrise, giving a unique view when exercising in the early morning.

  1. Would’ve been great if this building could’ve reached its originally slated height of 1,358’…….

  2. Those 2 mostly concrete elevations gives the building the look of a 900′ bunker, not great.

  3. I’ve heard nothing has sold here…is this true
