NOVEMBER 9, 2017 BY DEVIN GANNON   Shortly after the launch of condominium sales last month, new renderings of 125 Greenwich Street were released Thursday, revealing its imposing height over neighboring Financial District towers (h/t YIMBY). The proposed 912-foot tall luxury condo designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects, the firm behind staggering 432 Park Avenue, features 273 total units, including 190 studios and one-bedrooms. Upon its completion, 125 Greenwich will have the third-highest apartments in lower Manhattan, after the Four Seasons Private Residences at 30 Park Place and nearly complete 45 Broad Street. The design of the residential building, developed by Bizzi & Partners and Vector Group, features rounded glass corners and two concrete-ribbons along the northern and southern sides of its crown. The design calls for nearly column-free layouts, high ceilings and many corner units.  Its Lower Manhattan location offers proximity to the World Trade Center and Wall Street, in addition to panoramic views. Instead of a sprawling penthouse on its top floors, there will be three floors of amenities, including private entertaining and dining areas, a 50-foot lap pool, a spa and fitness center. The interiors are being handled by the British firm, March & White, known for its sleek, simple designs. The original design of 125 Greenwich had the tower reaching supertall status at 1,400 feet tall. After lowering that plan to 898 feet, it grew slightly in its latest plan to 912 feet tall. Three-bedroom units, which span up to 3,960 square feet, are starting at $4.625 million. The tower is offering nearly 200 studio to one-bedrooms priced from $1.2 million. Notably, the studios are located above the 61st floor, giving smaller families and single professionals a chance to take in the sweeping views for less.
The top floors of the 912-foot skyscraper are devoted to swank amenities

(Helmut Jahn’s 50 West is its closest competitor, geographically speaking.) And because no high-end condo in New York City can be built without a bevy of equally high-end perks, developer Bizzi & Partners have kitted out the top floors of the 912-foot building with what’s being called The 88 (because the top floor is the 88th floor, naturally). Spread across three floors, the amenity space was fashioned by British superyacht designers March & White, who also did the building’s interiors and apartments. Curbed has the exclusive on the first renderings of those amenities, which are about as over-the-top as you’d expect. The 15,000-square-foot space has several different components: The top floor is given over to a fitness center with a weight room and yoga/pilates studio. It overlooks the “wellness amenities” on the 87th floor, which include a spa, a “relaxation lounge,” and a 50-foot pool with pretty incredible views. On the 86th floor, there’s a private dining room, a screening room, and a lounge, also with panoramic views. The whole shebang will debut when the building welcomes its first residents in 2019. Currently, more than a dozen of its condos are up for grabs, with the cheapest being a $1.275 million studio on the 66th floor (yep, the studios are on the higher floors here), and the most expensive being a $5.6 million three-bedroom on the 50th floor.
