The first reflective glass panels have begun going up on the southern façade of 77 Greenwich Street in the Financial District. These will eventually cover the entire 350-foot-tall residential section that sits above a 150-foot retail and grade school podium. The 42-story mixed-use skyscraper is being designed by FXCollaborative. Trinity Place Holdings is the developer, while Deborah Berke Partners is in charge of the interior design. Sales have also launched for the 90 condominium units, which will range from one- to four-bedroom homes. Pricing begins at $1.78 million for a one-bedroom residence.
Recent photos from around the property show the reinforced concrete structure rising quickly toward its 500-foot-tall parapet. Distinguishing the tower architecturally from its neighboring buildings is the undulating curtain wall on the eastern and western exteriors, which will contrast with the traditional masonry and stone envelopes that are characteristic of the Financial District. The cantilevers on the southern elevation have also begun to firm and will become more visible once 77 Greenwich Street tops out, which could be by the end of this summer.
Construction has progressed more than halfway to the summit and will be a modest addition to the famous Lower Manhattan skyline.
Completion of 77 Greenwich Street will most likely happen in 2020.
