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.
A new six-story residential building at 485 Tompkins Avenue in Stuyvesant Heights, Brooklyn is about to undergo reviews by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
