The mysterious skyscraper, due to rise nearly 1,000 feet over Lower Manhattan, got new backers

Lower Manhattan's forthcoming tallest residential skyscraper is perpetually shrouded in mystery, but one thing we do know: it's recently gotten a cash infusion. Per a report in the New York Post, the development at 125 Greenwich Street—a project by Michael Shvo, Bizzi + Partners Development, and New Valley—has received an additional $175 million in funding from Chinese investors, thanks to the EB-5 program. The Post also reported that the building, which will rise at least 990 feet, will also have a spire of a height that has yet to be determined.

A new rendering of the building shows off Rafael Viñoly's design, which features curved glass windows around a column, with cuts within the exterior at various points. It looks similar to the renderings that circulated last summer, but this is the first up-close look we've gotten thus far.

According to a spokesperson, sales for the building's 275 units will launch sometime this fall; the New York Post reports that the sales office for the development will be located on the 84th floor of neighboring One World Trade Center, which seems apropos.
