Rendering via NY Yimby via Shvo
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything on Rafael Viñoly’s tower slated to rise in the Financial District, but it looks like the starchitect’s next supertall is inching closer to a full reveal. Ground was broken at the building’s 125 Greenwich Street site about four months ago, and now this newly uncovered rendering via NY Yimby gives us a much better idea of its height, its look, and how it fits in with the downtown skyline. Previous renderings had shown a stark, tall and slim rectangle—very much a glass version of Viñoly’s 432 Park—while this new and sweeping depiction highlights a structure that will taper slightly as it rises, and feature a stacked crown of what appear to be residences and sky-high terraces.
Though the height has not yet been confirmed by developers Michael Shvo and Bizzi & Partners, previous reports have pinned it at 1,356 feet, while DOB permits put the height at only 841 feet. However, as Yimby notes, it’s common practice for developers to shield the actual height of high-profile projects such as this. Either way, as seen above, 125 Greenwich is anticipated to become downtown NYC’s tallest residential tower. When completed, it will hold 128 apartments with ten 5,300-square-foot full-floor penthouses and a 10,600-square-foot duplex penthouse.
