Work is almost entirely complete on the reflective curtain wall of 125 Greenwich Street, number 14 in our countdown of the tallest projects under construction in New York City. The only sections awaiting façade work are the podium and the portion where the exterior hoist is still mounted. Designed by Rafael Vinoly and developed by Bizzi & Partners and Vector Group, the slender 88-story residential skyscraper stands 912 feet tall over the Financial District. The 273 residential units are being marketed by Douglas Elliman, while the interiors are designed by March & White. Plaza Construction is the general contractor for the development.

Photos from around the neighborhood show the tower from multiple angles and in varying lighting conditions. The blue sky easily reflects off the envelope and blends with the glass skyscrapers of the World Trade Center.

The section of the envelope requiring the most work is the lower floors of the building. Portions of the mixed glass and metal panels can be seen on the northern corner of the Greenwich Street elevation as well as on the profile along Thames Street. This is the only part of the architectural design that significantly contrasts with the geometry and outside appearance of the main superstructure above.

Although 125 Greenwich Street faced financial issues and disputes this past summer regarding two foreclosure proceedings, the project should most likely be completed sometime in 2020.

  1. To me, this building is a disaster..It is the clumsiest combination of glass and masonry that I have ever seen.

  2. This tower should have been 400′ taller, as was originally proposed. But at its actual, significantly-shorter 912′ it has very little impact on the Manhattan skyline. What could have been…

  3. Isn’t that the back of the building? The side that will presumably someday be obscured by an even larger neighbor? One can only hope.

  4. This week, December 16 2019, is the first time I have noticed the construction hoist elevators operating at 125 Greenwich Street; for many weeks, the elevators were not operating, nor did I see any construction vehicles or deliveries occurring at the site. Has the work resumed? Or is it still in the limbo of the foreclosure/ financial problems?

  5. Is it my imagination, or has this taken 3x as long as any other building? Surrounding sidewalks have been swallowed up for ages.
