3 World Trade Center, aka 175 Greenwich Street, opened its doors for the first time on June 11, 2018, with the traditional ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by Silverstein Properties. After a series of guest speakers and live performances, the ribbon was cut at 12:00PM, officially opening the building for business. Designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and developed by Silverstein Properties, the 80-story, 1,079 foot supertall is currently the fifth tallest skyscraper in New York City, and the second tallest at the World Trade Center.
One of the best comforts of living in the Financial District is its proximity to New York’s Harbor and rivers. For the residential tower rising at One Seaport, unencumbered views are guaranteed for as long as the adjacent highway remains. Today’s update from Tectonic shows the building has a third of its height left until it reaches its 60-floor pinnacle.
Five buildings have now been demolished at 75-83 Nassau Street, just a block away from the Fulton Street transportation hub in the center of the Financial District. The activity will make way for Lexin Capital’s proposed 40-story residential skyscraper designed by ODA. New building permits are still awaiting approval, but recent activity on site suggests increasing momentum toward actual construction.
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.
Construction is well underway for what will eventually become the Financial District’s tallest residential tower, a 64-story supertall at 45 Broad Street. Thanks to a reader providing an overview photograph, we can see that trucks are currently removing debris from the site, and reports indicate that concrete trucks are also moving in and out, indicating that excavation is now in full swing. Drilling for the foundational piers has already started. Pizzarotti LLC is responsible for building and developing the tower, along with Madison Equities and AMS Acquisitions.
