Above the Financial District, 125 Greenwich Street rises as a slender 88-story residential skyscraper. Designed by Rafael Vinoly and developed by Bizzi & Partners and Vector Group, the 912-foot tall glass and concrete structure has topped out. The 273 residential units are being marketed by Douglas Elliman, while the interiors are being designed by March & White. YIMBY recently got to go on a tour of the upcoming construction, capturing views from the very top.
125 Greenwich Street
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.
Downtown’s residential boom continues apace with the construction of 125 Greenwich Street, which has reached two-thirds of the way to its 912-foot-tall pinnacle on a corner overlooking the World Trade Center memorial. The tower will rise above most of its neighbors in the Financial District, but since it is right across from 1 World Trade Center, it will not make a sizable impact on the skyline. Architect Rafael Viñoly is also responsible for the Midtown supertall 432 Park Avenue.
Last month, YIMBY toured the sales gallery for 125 Greenwich Street as the first in a series of skyline updates going live this week. Construction is moving quickly, and last we saw, the tower had risen over two-dozen floors, and nearly 300 feet, above ground. That leaves plenty of height left to grow before it makes an impact on the Lower Manhattan skyline. Famed architect Rafael Viñoly is responsible for the design.
With 175 Greenwich Street nearing its opening day and 200 Greenwich Street hopefully expected to begin construction within the next few years, most of the World Trade Center’s rebuilding is nearing completion. But one major hole in Downtown’s fabric still remains, at the site of the former Deutsche Bank Building. Plans for a pot-bellied skyscraper had been proposed around the time of the tower’s demolition, but in the years since, the plot had seemingly been forgotten, and is currently covered in asphalt. Today, YIMBY has a major update on the site, thanks to zombified plans from Chinese developer Dalian Wanda Group, which would yield a new residential and hotel supertall designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox.
