Exterior work is getting close to completion at 125 Greenwich Street, the tallest residential skyscraper currently under construction in the Financial District. The 912-foot-tall, 88-story structure is designed by Rafael Vinoly and developed by Bizzi & Partners and Vector Group. Douglas Elliman is leading the sales and marketing for the building’s 273 residential units, which feature interiors designed by March & White. Plaza Construction is the general contractor for the project, which is located between Greenwich Street and Thames Street.
Photographs from around the base of the slender tower show the black panels that surround the narrow windows on the western elevation are almost completely installed. The section behind the exterior hoist and a handful of open slots on the first few floors are the only areas left to enclose.
The rest of the curtain wall remains practically finished and unchanged since our late December construction update.
Photos below from the Financial District, the New York Harbor, and Brooklyn Heights show the tower’s slim profile among a swath of landmarks that define the landscape of Lower Manhattan.
The biggest selling point for future residents is the building’s views, all which are framed by glass corners to allow for uninterrupted panoramic vistas of the World Trade Center and the 9/11 Memorial, the historic skyscrapers around Wall Street, the New York Harbor with the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge to the south, and the sunsets behind the Jersey City skyline across the Hudson River. The amenity space, named The 88, is perched high up on the top three floors of the tower and comes with an infinity pool, a spa and sauna, a fitness center and yoga studio, a theater, a relaxation lounge, and a private dining room.
125 Greenwich Street ran into financial issues last summer with two foreclosure proceedings, which slowed down progress toward the end of 2019. Work should hopefully finish by the end of the year or early 2021 at the latest.
