The latest in the world of New York City supertalls comes to us from New York YIMBY, who has revealed renderings for the Rafael Viñoly-designed 125 Greenwich Street. At 1,356 feet, it will become Downtown’s tallest residential tower, the first to rival the 57th Street skyscrapers like Extell’s planned Nordstrom Tower, which will rise 1,479 feet. It will also be just 12 feet shy of One World Trade Center’s roof, making it the second tallest skyscraper in the Financial District.
The project was originally known as 22 Thames, but changed monikers earlier this year when Michael Shvo and Bizzi & Partners purchased the site for $185 million; the deal closed just last week. Rafael Viñoly, who was responsible for the original 961-foot rental tower design, has imagined the super-slim, 77-story building, which is now a condominium project.
125 Greenwich Street’s 128 units will have soaring ceilings: up to the 38th floor they are 13 feet; from floors 40 to 65 they’re 16 feet; and on the 67th through 77th floors, residents will have impressive 24-foot heights. The total square footage of the building will be 453,628, which includes 20,752 square feet of retail on the ground level. Mechanicals are planned for the bottom of the tower and floors 39, 55, and 66. “Maid’s rooms” are set for floors eight through ten, just above the amenities. There will also be ten full-floor, 5,300-square-foot penthouses and a 10,600-square-foot duplex to top off the tower. Though pricing is not yet available, a close competitor will likely be 101 Tribeca at 101 Murray Street.
