After months of site preparation and foundation work, the Financial District’s next monumental skyscraper has reached street level and is now set to rocket skyward. Simply known as 125 Greenwich Street, the project site at the corner of Thames and Greenwich Street is a block away from the World Trade Center and directly abuts the old historic Curb Exchange building. The tower is being developed through a joint-venture between SHVO, New Valley and Bizzi + Partners Development who purchased the lot for $185 million from a partnership between Witkoff and Fisher Brothers. The super-slender skyscraper connoisseurs at Rafael Viñoly Architects have been tapped as the designers and their newly updated website provides new renderings and an insightful description on the project design.

Like many of our new sliver-skyscrapers, the tower’s form was purposefully shaped to be resistant to the wind and provide flexible layouts, according to Viñoly’s webpage. An eight-floor podium graduates into a sheer, glass-clad tower with two side-by-side shear walls evoking upended I-beams. Floorplates are parallelogram-shaped and are nearly free of interior columns. The west-facing rounded corners overlook the lush grounds of the memorial and beyond towards the Hudson River. and harbor.
Perhaps a story of the incredibly shrinking tower, 125 Greenwich was once slated to soar nearly 1,400 feet tall. Now, it’s anticipated height of 898 feet is shorter than Maki’s Four World Trade Center one block north. Per Vinoly’s page, the lower height provides a more respectful adjacency to Liebeskind’s spiraling WTC vision, reduces shadows onto the site and the broadened floor plates provide more generous and flexible apartment layouts. Even at its reduced height, the building will stand as the third tallest residential building downtown (temporarily), and most apartments will be presented with sweeping views of the city and harbor.

Like 432 Park’s open-air mechanical floors, that are now spectacularly illuminated at night, 125 Greenwich’s will boast a distinguishable stack of mechanical floors that will be hexagonally shaped and positioned between two masses of residential floors. Per Vinoly, “These mechanical floors also act as a visual break in the tower’s glass façade.”
There will be approximately 273 finely-appointed residences inside and Douglas Elliman is handling sales. Future residents will enjoy amenities perched high within the building’s upper aeries. They are to include conferencing facilities, fitness and spa facilities, a grotto, squash courts, a library, game area, demo kitchen, and tech bar. At ground level, there will be three floors of retail space.
