It’s been some time since 6sqft checked on 125 Greenwich Street, a slender tower that will soar more than 1,000 feet high and offer a limited collection of condominium residences with unparalleled views of the lower Manhattan skyline and beyond. Developed by a joint venture comprised of Michael Shvo, Bizzi + Partners Development, and Howard Lorber’s Vector Group, the 9,000-square-foot corner site will yield 275 compact residences spread over 306,000 square feet of space, along with a retail- and amenity-filled podium. Plans submitted to the Department of Buildings in October show that most of the building’s floor plates will house six apartments each.

The skyscraper’s svelte design by Rafael Viñoly Architects is mostly sheathed in glass, but is distinguished by a pair of full-length vertical bands along the north and south elevations that shadow the building’s concrete core. Two or three sets of cutaway terraces along the south and north elevations will provide spectacular landscaped aeries.

Most of the site is located on landfill and the long groundwork process continues. Foundation walls are now being poured and the superstructure should begin its ascension within a few months. Delivery is expected sometime in 2018.
