Michael Shvo's Enormous FiDi Tower Is Beginning To Rise

New, 27 comments

A tipster informs us that work started this weekend at 125 Greenwich Street, the future site of the 1,356-foot tower that Michael Shvo (along with Bizzi Partners) is developing, which, going by the renderings, looks like it's going to be a tall, slim, completely unembellished glass rectangle. The 77-story Rafael Vinoly-designed building will be Downtown's tallest residential tower, and will stand only 23 feet shorter than the city's record-holder, 432 Park Avenue. There is no targeted completion yet as of yet for the ambitious project, which will contain a total of 128 apartments, including 10 5,300-square-foot full-floor penthouses and a 10,600-square-foot duplex penthouse.

UPDATE: Though previous reports from sources involved with the development said that the tower would be 1,356-feet tall, New Building permits issued on February 12 put the building height at "just" 841 feet and 71 stories.

Here's an aerial view, just to help clarify the Instagram user's point as to how small the site is.

It's going to be mighty skinny.
