Just one week after developer Michael Shvo closed on the $180 million deal that passed 125 Greenwich Streetknown prior as 22 Thames Streetfrom former site developers Fisher Brothers and Steven Witkoff into his hands, the comeback kid has unveiled plans for the lot-sans-height-restrictions. Together with Bizzi & Partners, Shvo plans to bring a 1,356-foot-tall tower of condos to the Financial District, making it downtown's tallest residential building, New York YIMBY reports. To put it another way, the 77-story building will stop just 12 feet short of One World Trade Center's roof, and 23 feet short of soaring Midtown creation 432 Park Avenue.
Shvo has kept Rafael Vinoly on as the architect, who formerly designed a 961-foot tower for the site. While the new design for 125 Greenwich Street is similarly glassy, it is also as erect and boxy as its oft-chastised neighbor to the north at 432 Park Avenue (also designed by Vinoly.) The supertall's floor count has only been upped by seven to 77 amidst its 395-foot boost; YIMBY reveals that this is because the building's ceiling heights will range from 13 feet from lower levels to the 38th floor, 16 feet from floors 40 to 65, and an alarming 24 feet from floors 67 through 77. Floors 8 through 10 will house "maid's rooms" and the building's lower floors will be devoted to amenity space and 20,752-square-feet of retail.
The tower will house 128 apartments, ten of which will be 5,300-square-foot full-floor penthouses. The building will be crowned by a 10,600-square-foot duplex penthouse. No revised plans have been filed for the site, nor has a completion date been mentioned.
