The installation of new glass curtain walls on the lower levels of 388 Greenwich Street and its annex at 390 Greenwich Street is almost complete. The taller, 39-story office building rises above the Tribeca waterfront across from Pier 25 and Pier 26. Skidmore, Owings & Merrill designed the 14-story-high glass envelope, while Gensler is leading the interior renovations in both structures.
New photos from Pier 25 show the reflective glass panels.
The site is located next to West Street and sits to the north of the Borough of Manhattan Community College. Hudson River Park is across West Street. Work on the ground floor facing west toward West Street appears nearly complete.
Below is an image showing what the original façade used to look like.
A number of small windows arranged in a grid dotted the curved elevation of 388 Greenwich Street, while wide, rectangular windows on 390 Greenwich Street were sandwiched in between large concrete wall slabs. The new wraparound glass on both buildings will provide their interiors with much more natural light.
Completion of the new curtain appears to be imminent, and the remainder of the renovations could finish by the end of the year.
